#BREAKING: Deeply sad to report it’s been confirmed two Australians were killed in the Sri Lankan Easter Sunday terrorist attack yesterday. The two Australians were from the same family & were living in Sri Lanka. I can also confirm two other Australian citizens were injured in the attacks. They have received medical treatment for their injuries and are recovering. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of those who have passed away and the injured.
