The Danish flag was lowered at half mast at the Hojvangsskolen school in Arhus on Tuesday, in memory of two of its students who died in the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka.

One of the students is reportedly one of billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen’s three children who perished in the attacks.

In total, at least 321 people were killed and a further 450 were injured after eight explosions rocked hotels and churches across Sri Lanka on Sunday.

Six blasts took place in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo while two further explosions occurred in the western city of Negombo and the eastern city of Batticaloa.

A Sri Lankan government spokesperson admitted during a press conference in Colombo on Monday that there had been warnings from intelligence agencies about possible terrorist attacks on Christian targets in the country.
