A Sri Lanka hospital spokesman says six Easter Sunday blasts killed at least 30 people and wounded 283 others, NBC News reports.

The near-simultaneous blasts hit three churches and three hotels frequented by tourists, a Sri Lanka security official said.

One church, St. Anthony’s Shrine, and the three hotels are in Colombo and are frequented by foreign tourists. The other two churches are in Negombo, a Catholic majority town north of Colombo, and the eastern town of Batticaloa.
