At a village church about 20 miles north of the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, a large notice board displays a list of names starting at 1 and ending at 115. Alongside is a poem. It ends: “Safely Home in Heaven.”
On Easter Sunday exactly one year ago, all of these 115 people, including 27 children, were killed by one murderer – who exploded his suicide bomb-vest during a church service.
