Asia Journalist Association condemns the Sri Lanka’s blasts which were reported in Colombo and Negombo, in the southwest of the country, and in Batticaloa, on the other side of the island, as Christians celebrate Easter Sunday. AJA considers each act against innocent people is an act of terror. While we, members of AJA, send our sincere condolences to the families of victims, we hope that peace and tolerance could help the whole peoples to live in peace; no matter their differences and varied cultures, religions, and races.
