Family’s near miss at bombed Lanka church

When Dilip Fernando arrived at St Sebastian’s church in Sri Lanka’s Negombo on Easter Sunday, it was so crowded he went elsewhere for mass. The decision probably saved his life. Shortly after he left, a massive bomb ripped through the church as worshippers observed the Christian holiday. Fernando returned to the church yesterday morning in the seaside town of Negombo to see the damage at the site where he and his family narrowly escaped death. “Yesterday me and my wife arrived at 7:30 am but it was so crowded there was no place for me. I didn’t want to stand so I left and went to another church,” Fernando said.
