April 22, 2019 -- Sunday's coordinated suicide attacks on churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka killed 290 people, including 32 foreigners, and wounded more than 500 others.

The targets included St Anthony’s Shrine, Colombo; St. Sebastian’s, Negombo; Zion Church, Batticaloa; Kingsbury Hotel, Shangri-La Hotel, and Cinnamon Grand in Colombo. There were two explosions during police raids in Colombo, and a pipe bomb was defused near Colombo’s main airport on Sunday night.

Foreigners killed include British citizens, and U.S., Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch and Portuguese nationals

Around 7.6 per cent of mainly Buddhist Sri Lanka is Catholic, but the religion is seen as a unifying force because it includes both Tamil and majority Sinhalese ethnic groups.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
