I know, and it is even larger. While I have met Sri Lankan people in conferences, and know that the little country has an interesting history, I know very little about it. It is utterly horrible, but I have very little background on the case. Of course what remains of ISIS would "claim responsibility" for the massacre, but they do that about anything. And "revenge" against the Christchurch mosque massacre - by a white supremacist. And most Sri Lankans are certainly not white.
Adding this piece from a Sri Lankan journalist, from the Guardian:
One thing that makes such a terrorist attack so puzzling is the fact that only 8% of Srilankans are Christians and only 10% are Muslim. I find it odd for two small minorities to be in a conflict like this. Except for the internet. Except for the media. Except for all of the fake news spreading like poison.
Thanks, whatagain. It is such a horrible thing for a father or mother to endure, as you know very well. Whether he (in this instance) was a wealthy investor or a seaman matters not at all. As far as I know, Denmark has little or nothing to do with this enmity.
