Sri Lankan authorities released for the first time the names and photos of the nine people they say detonated suicide bombs on Easter Sunday and killed more than 250 people at hotels, churches and a private residence across three cities. A fanatical preacher and a man from his hometown. A man who studied in Britain and Australia. The two sons and daughter-in-law of a wealthy spice tycoon. Although several of the names had been reported by various media outlets from Sri Lanka, three of the bombers now named by the authorities were previously unknown. They included Mohammed Azam Mohammed Mubarak, who detonated a bomb at the Kingsbury Hotel; Alawudeen Ahmed Muwath, who attacked the historic St. Anthony’s Shrine in the capital of Colombo; and Achchi Mohamadhu Mohamadhu Hasthun, who targeted St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, Sri Lankan authorities said.
