Picture emerges of well-to-do young bombers behind Sri Lankan carnage

Source: Reuters

COLOMBO (Reuters) - Details began to emerge in Sri Lanka on Wednesday of a band of nine, well-educated Islamist suicide bombers, including a woman, from well-to-do families who slaughtered 359 people in Easter Sunday bomb attacks.

The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks on three churches and four hotels. If that connection is confirmed, the attacks looks likely to be the deadliest ever linked to the group.

1. Osama Bin Laden was also from a very rich family.

I hope future threats are acted upon quickly by all countries.

2. The 16 9/11 terrorists were well educated and devout

Not really sure what drives these people.
Are they trying to save Ďtheirí world?

3. Devout my ass. Remember how they got drunk and went to strip clubs?

They lived quite hedonistically in the US.

5. I believe they were trying to blend in.

That or they just wanted some of that paradise they were promised before the fact.

10. A lot of those stories, I didn't believe.

There were a couple of accounts where they were "identified" as being at the strip clubs because they had their Korans with them and were saying thing like, "Allah is great!".

Puh-leaze.

There was a tremendous amount of mis- and disinformation being thrown around immediately after the 9/11 attacks. I'm not a "truther", necessarily, but there was a lot of weird shit going on that time that still makes me wonder what the real story is.

4. It is obviously not jealousy of rich people

They are rich themselves. That leaves mainly one reason...religious non-tolerance.

7. 359?

Iíve been dealing with a sick elderly dad, I missed the death toll going up so much. Wow. I canít fathom that much hate against strangers.

8. Worst fanatics are religious fanatics

Especially if the religion rewards you for destroying non-believers.

9. They revised it down a 100, to "about 253"


Sri Lanka has revised down the death toll from Sunday's blasts by more than 100, to "about 253", the health ministry says.

It has blamed a calculation error.
