St. Sebastian Church in the predominantly Catholic town of Negombo that was rocked by one of the blasts has posted images depicting bodies lying on the floor among debris from the explosion. The photos show the havoc wreaked by what appears to be shrapnel from the explosive device, including shattered windows and a damaged roof.
