The Sri Lankan government has blamed National Thowheeth Jamaath for the deadly attacks.
Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the coordinated bombings in Sri Lanka that killed 321 people and injured about 500, the group’s AMAQ agency said on Tuesday.
The group did not give any evidence for its claim.

The Sri Lankan government has blamed National Thowheeth Jamaath (NTJ) after seven suicide bombers struck at three churches and three hotels on Sunday.
Speaking at an emergency session of Parliament, State Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardene said, “Preliminary investigation revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka was in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch.” Mr. Wijewardene has proposed banning the NTJ.
However, the Islamic State’s claim does not mention the Christchurch shootings.
