TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Berlin (AFP) Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier have sharply condemned the attacks on hotels and churches in Sri Lanka with more than 150 dead. It was "shocking that people who had gathered to celebrate Easter together were a conscious target of these sneak attacks," Merkel said in a condolence telegram to Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena. "Religious hatred and intolerance, which have manifested so terribly today, must not win," the Chancellor demanded.
