ISIS Claims Responsibility for Deadly Sri Lanka Bombings

An image released by a pro-ISIS media channel purportedly showing one of the bombers.

ISIS claimed responsibility Tuesday for the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka that killed at least 321 people, as an image emerged of three men said to be among the suicide bombers with a flag of the terror group in the backdrop.

The three men in the photo released by pro-ISIS TV channels have been identified as Abu Ubaida, Abul Barra and Abul Mukhtar, according to the International Business Times.

Ubaida, who also is known as Zahran Hashin, is said to be an operative for the National Thowheed Jamaath, a jihadi group in Sri Lanka, the Times of India reported.

Officials blamed both the National Thowheed Jamaath and Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim for the attacks, claiming they were retaliation for shootings at mosques in New Zealand.

In the image, Ubaida is the one with his face uncovered, clutching an assault rifle, while the others are wearing black and white scarves.
