At least 207 people have been killed and 450 more wounded following a series of explosions in Sri Lanka.
The blasts took place in the capital Colombo, a town north of the capital and a town on the island nation’s east coast, targeting churches, hotels and a housing development.
Here’s how leaders around the world responded:
