The UN Security Council on Monday condemned the series of terrorist attacks "in the strongest terms", saying the attacks across Sri Lanka were "heinous and cowardly."
 
The members of the Security Council expressed their "deepest sympathy and condolences" to the families of the victims and to the government of Sri Lanka.
