Death toll in Sri Lanka attacks lowered by more than 100 Updated: 2019-04-26 07:00:15 KST

Sri Lanka's Health Ministry has revised the death toll of Easter Sunday's terror attack, lowering the number of those killed by more than 100, to 253.
In a statement, the health ministry claimed the previous death toll released by the ministry was 290 and it blamed a calculation error, without elaborating.
Most of those killed were Sri Lankans, but there were also dozens of foreigners among the dead.
Nine people are suspected of carrying out the attack and a massive international criminal investigation is ongoing.
