(CNN)More than 150 people were injured when explosions rocked at least three churches and two hotels in Sri Lanka on Sunday morning as Christians celebrated Easter, authorities said.

Sri Lankan police spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekera confirmed the explosions, some of which happened in the capital of Colombo. Most of those injured were taken to Colombo National Hospital, according to hospital officials.

There have been “many casualties including foreigners,” tweeted Sri Lankan MP Harsha de Silva.

De Silva said two locations of the explosions were Kochchikade church and Shangri-la hotel in Kingsbury, Colombo.

“Horrible scenes, I saw many body parts strewn all over,” De Silva said after visiting the scene. He said emergency crews are at the scenes operating in “full force.”

  13. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue
    or something to do with web browser compatibility but
    I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though!

    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    I only use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the latest news.
