Sri Lankan Officials Revise Death Toll From Easter Bombings

According to Reuters, Sri Lankan officials revised the death toll from the Easter bombings.

Sri Lanka's deputy defense minister said inaccurate data provided by morgues caused a discrepancy.

The minister added that 253 people were killed by terrorists on Easter Sunday, down from an estimated 359 dead.

The director general of Sri Lanka’s health services said that identifying the total number of dead has been difficult because so many of the bodies are in parts.
