Lancashire's faith leaders and politicians stand united in condemning the terrorist attacks against Christian worshippers in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

The Anglican/Muslim Forum of Lancashire, which seeks to promote understanding and respect between Muslims and Christians in the county, condemned the atrocity and called for all faiths to unite in rejecting extremism.

The Easter Sunday attacks left more than 300 people dead in a wave of bombings targeting Christian worshippers in the island nation.

"The attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday at churches and hotels are a terrible crime against worshippers and holiday makers on this Christian holy day", said a spokesman for the interfaith forum.
