ISIS has claimed responsibility for bombings that left 321 people dead and 375 hospitalized in Sri Lanka.

In a statement released by its Amaq news agency, the group said it was targeting citizens of countries bombings its territories and Christians.

Previously, authorities believed that the National Thowheeth Jama’at (NTJ), a Sri Lankan Islamist movement, was responsible for orchestrating the Easter Sunday attacks.

However, a government spokesman had emphasized that NTJ was small and would have required "international support" to carry out such a complex attack.
