Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says several Americans were among those killed during a series of deadly bombings in Sri Lanka.

The White House Press Office issued a statement condemning the terrorist attacks.

President Trump also tweeted in support of the people and government of Sri Lanka, saying “The United States offers heartfelt condolences to the great people of Sri Lanka. We stand ready to help!”

At least 207 people were killed in the Sunday morning attack.

Shortly after the bombings, Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister took to the airwaves to condemn the bombings as “cowardly.”

Reports say three police officers were killed during a raid of a home where several suspects were believed to have been hiding.

Meantime, 13 suspects are reportedly in custody in connection with the attack.
