[DAWN] India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday made an unscheduled stop at a Catholic church bombed during the Easter suicide attacks ahead of his official welcome to Sri Lanka.

Modi’s entourage made a detour to St Anthony’s shrine on their way to President Maithripala Sirisena’s office, where a red carpet military parade awaited.

“I am confident Sri Lanka will rise again,” Modi said on Twitter while posting photos of himself at the church.
