Risch Statement on Terror Attacks in Sri Lanka

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made the following statement on the Easter morning terror attacks in Sri Lanka that killed more than 200 people, including several U.S. citizens: 

“No person of faith should fear for his or her life in a place of worship,” said Risch. “Today’s horrific terror attacks are especially poignant on Easter Sunday, a day that many of us around the world celebrate our Christian faith. Vicki and I pray for the victims of today’s violence in Sri Lanka, and condemn all extremist ideologies that inspire terror.”
