Another Dubai-based expatriate, P.S Razeena, 60, also died in the attacks. She was at the Shangri-La hotel when the bombing took place.

Officials have arrested around 60 people as part of their investigation, and said there were nine suicide bombers.

ISIL has claimed the attacks, while the Sri Lankan government has implicated the National Tawheed Jamath (NTJ) group for the attacks.
