Video shows Sri Lanka bomber walking into church moments before attack

Chilling video shows a suspected Sri Lanka suicide bomber calmly strolling into a packed church — moments before launching the blast that killed at least 122 worshipers there.

Security-camera footage shows the young-looking man, dressed in dark pants and a light blue shirt, casually heading into St Sebastian’s church with a heavy camping-style bag on his back.

As he first crossed a courtyard, he paused to let a young girl walk by — seemingly even patting her as she passed.

He then walked in the middle entrance of the church, one of three targeted in the coordinated terror attacks and standing-room only with worshipers for Easter Sunday mass.

Passing parishioners standing on the edges, he finally headed down a pew — before the shocking explosion ends the clip.

The church has since given police the full footage of the blast that killed at least 122, CNN said.

St Sebastian’s was one of three churches struck at the same time as three popular hotels in the atrocity that claimed at least 290 lives in total — including at least four Americans — and injuring 500 others.

Sri Lankan officials said a total of 24 suspects had been arrested and blame a local terror group, National Towheed Jamath, for the coordinated attacks.
