According to Reuters, Sri Lankan officials revised the death toll from Easter Sunday bombings down by about 100 on Thursday, blaming the difficulty in identifying body parts at bomb scenes. Deputy Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardene said that the new official figure was 253, down from an earlier 359. He blamed inaccurate data provided by morgues for the discrepancy. The director general of Sri Lanka’s health services said that "there are so many body parts and it is difficult to give a precise figure.”
