ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Sri Lanka suicide bombings that killed 321 people - including eight Britons - and injured 500 others.

The terror group claims "the executors of the attack that targeted citizens of coalition states & Christians in Sri Lanka two days ago were with ISIS".

If ISIS was involved it would possibly be the group's deadliest attack outside of Iraq and Syria.

Sri Lanka's government has blamed two domestic Islamist extremist groups for carrying out the attack, but believes they had help from foreign militants.

The early findings of the investigation have found that the attacks were committed in revenge for the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, a month ago, a junior minister told parliament.
