CCTV images emerged from a suspected suicide bomber who entered the San Sebastian church in Negombo just before an explosion swept through the building.

The Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, said at least 110 people died in San Sebastian, the deadliest of a series of attacks on churches and luxury hotels that left at least 310 people dead.

The images, widely broadcast on Sri Lanka’s news channels, track the movements of a bearded young man with a backpack, outside the building.

The same man is picked up in the inner chambers of San Sebastian that enter the church full of Easter Sunday worshipers.

The video stops before the bomb is detonated. The images of the consequences of the explosion show banks stained with blood, the roof ripped out and knocked down doors and windows.

In addition to San Sebastian, the churches of Batticaloa on the east coast and the Kochchikade district of Colombo, along with the Shangri-La, Kingsbury and Cinnamon Grand hotels in the capital of the country were attacked.

The authorities said all the attacks were carried out by suicide bombers.
