"The terrorist attacks in  are an unspeakable tragedy rocking the Christian, Sri Lankan, and international communities. On this , Georgia mourns for the victims and stands with Sri Lanka," the tweet reads.

The Easter Sunday bombings were the deadliest violence Sri Lanka has witnessed since the end of the country's civil war in 2009.

BBC reports the first explosions came at about 08:45 local time with six blasts reported within a small space of time.

Three churches in Negombo, Batticaloa and Colombo's Kochchikade district were targeted during Easter services. Blasts also rocked the Shangri-La, Kingsbury and Cinnamon Grand hotels in the country's capital.

All the attacks were carried out by suicide bombers, officials said.

Police said 24 people had been arrested, but it is not yet known who carried out the attacks.
