Sri Lanka Bomb Blasts Killed Hundreds

Sri Lanka Bomb Blasts Killed Hundreds

On the Easter Sunday, Sri Lanka Bomb Blasts killed hundreds. The blast killed 290 people in churches and hotels which led the country of 21 million people affected. Although it is still not clear as to who is behind the eight explosions. But according to Manisha Gunasekera, High Commissioner of Sri Lanka it is certainly an act of terror.

A warning was given to an intelligence memo for the attack. It was circulated 10 days prior to the Easter but the preventive measures still failed. Many questions are arising on this as to why this was ignored.

How Attacks Took Place

The first attack took place during the Easter services at the churches of Colombo, Negombo, and Batticaloa.

The next wave was seen at the three luxury hotels. These were in the capital city of Colombo: The Shangri La, Cinnamon Grand, and Kingsbury. According to ‘The Shangri La, Colombo’, the attack took place at the hotel’s Table One Café at 9:00 am local time. The other blast was at the hotel, which is in front of the Dehiwala Zoo, Mount Lavinia. The last blast was at a private house in Mahawila gardens, Dematagoda. This was during a raid which had connections with the attacks. Three police officers were also killed in this attack.

Sri Lanka Blasts

The eight sights where attacks took place were:

  • Anthony’s Shrine, Colombo
  • Sebastian’s Church, Negombo
  • Zion Church, Batticaloa
  • Cinnamon Grand, Colombo
  • Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo
  • The Kingsbury Hotel, Colombo
  • Near Dehiwala Zoo in Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia
  • A house in Mahawila Gardens, Dematagoda

Till now there is no claim of responsibility by any terror group. But according to Harsha de Silva, Minister of Economic Reforms and Public Distribution seven people were arrested.

The bomb blast blew out the roofs of the churches and killed worshippers and hotel guests. The explosion killed hundreds of people who came to the church for Easter Sunday.

Sri Lanka Church

Gunasekara said, “This is an attack against the whole of Sri Lanka because Sri Lanka is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and multi-cultural country, and the whole country comes together in celebration of Easter Sunday”.

Aftermath of Bomb Blast

After the attack, the Sri Lankan government blocked all the social media sites until the investigation. Curfew is also imposed in the country from Sunday until Monday morning. This led to the empty streets with no hustle bustle in the city.

WhatsApp Will Not Allow Screenshots Of Chats

WhatsApp Will Not Allow Screenshots Of Chats

These days WhatsApp is adding a cluster of features for added functionality and for security purposes. According to sources, WhatsApp will not allow screenshots of chats soon.

When you activate this new feature in the application, you will not be able to take the screenshot of the conversation.

According to WABetalInfo, the source for information regarding WhatsApp, the application is on a testing mode for the screenshot blocking feature. This is supposedly going to come with the feature of fingerprint lock for Android users.

The intention behind this move would be to strengthen the privacy of users. It will also restrict the third-person to not use sensitive information. It will be an effective decision because it was very easy to capture any information by just taking a screenshot.

The incursion of this new feature may not completely stop the misuse of information, but it will slow down gradually. Applications like Snapchat and Facebook are already on it. Snapchat doesn’t allow taking the screenshots of the snaps while Facebook has an option of “Privacy Shield”. This shield doesn’t allow users to take screenshots or activate notifications to another party.

Although there are other ways to get away from this feature. These ways have applications that mask this action, record the screen, and copy-pasting of the entire WhatsApp chats.

In response to this new WhatsApp update, there is no confirmation when it will hit the application. This is no validation whether it will be for Android, iOS or both.
