Rep. Waters Statement on the Sri Lanka Bombings

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued the following statement on the bombings at several sites in Sri Lanka, which killed more than 200 people and injured more than 400 others, some of whom were American citizens:

“I am horrified and saddened by the series of bombings in Sri Lanka, which killed more than 200 people and injured more than 400 others, including several American citizens. These merciless and hate-filled acts targeted Christian worshippers on Easter – one of the most significant and sacred holidays of the Christian faith. My heart goes out to the victims, their families, and the people of Sri Lanka as they recover from these senseless acts of violence. As an international community, let us pull together once again to overcome fear with strength, pride, and love in the face of hate and unconscionable violence.”
