World leaders have condemned the explosions that rocked Sri Lanka on Sunday leaving more than 200 people dead.

Eight attacks were carried out in and around the capital, Colombo, targeting churches and hotels.

Three explosions went off in three churches, three in luxury hotels, one in a guest house and a last one at an undisclosed location.

Following the blasts, the Sri Lankan government has declared a 6PM to 6AM curfew in the country with immediate effect.
