Sirisena called the garment “a security risk and a flag of fundamentalism.” At least one female suicide bomber blew herself up, killing her two children and three police officers in connection with the terror attacks, as police raided her home. Her husband and brother-in-law each carried out a suicide attack.

The attackers pledged their allegiance to the Islamic State before carrying out the attacks.

Big League Politics reported:

A video has surfaced purportedly showing the terrorists who committed the attacks against Christians in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday pledging their lives to ISIS and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, after the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

According to its news agency, the Islamic State has taken responsibility for the horrific terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka that saw 290 Christians killed and over 500 wounded. The terrorist organization also released images and videos claiming to show the terrorists swearing allegiance to the Islamic State and its leader, allegedly recorded just prior to the devastating attacks.

The video shows the alleged terrorists huddling in a circle and praying for the success of their attack, and ends with an oath to al-Baghdadi.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
