Shortly after those blasts were reported, police confirmed three hotels, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury hotels, in the capital had also been hit, along with a church in the town of Batticalao, in the east of the country.

The Foreign Office said it was “urgently seeking” information from authorities in Sri Lanka.
