A man whose wife and daughter were killed in one of the Sri Lanka terror attacks on Easter Sunday has narrated how they died in his arms while they were in church.

Sudesh Kolonne was at Easter Sunday Mass with Australian wife Manik and daughter, Alexandria, 10. The family had gone to St Sebastian Church in Negombo and just before Mass ended, Sudesh, an Australian, went to wait outside.
