The death toll in Sri Lanka’s Easter Day attack is around 100 fewer than the 359 originally thought, two top government officials said on Thursday. Ruwan Wijewardene, Sri Lanka’s deputy defence minister whose ministry is responsible for the island’s police force, said the death toll had been revised down to 253 due to inaccurate figures provided by the country’s morgues.
