Religious leaders call for unity after Sri Lanka attacks

Sri Lanka's diverse religious groups try to build bridges even as Muslim community in Negombo suffers reprisals.

    As Sri Lanka reels from the Easter Sunday bombings its religious heads have organised an interfaith meeting and appealed for calm.

    But hundreds of Muslims have fled Negombo on the western coast where some isolated revenge attacks have taken place.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Kelaniya, just outside the capital Colombo.
