    On Sunday, Sri Lanka was hit by a series of coordinated bombings in churches and hotels in the capital of Colombo and other cities, killing over 300 people and wounding at least 500 others.

    In recently revealed CCTV footage, one of the seven suspected suicide bombers is seen stopping to pat a girl on the head minutes before detonating a bomb. According to the footage, he was very calm before the attack.

    Sri Lanka launched a criminal investigation immediately after the attacks and has so far arrested 40 suspects.
