The funeral was held on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at Aarhus Cathedral, in Denmark, where the family is originally from, and was attended by family, friends and even the Danish Royal Family.

It has been reported that the three children, Alfred, Alma and Agnes, were staying with their family at the Shangri-La Hotel in the capital of Colombo when it was hit.

HUNDREDS KILLED IN THE ATTACKS

Alfred, Alma and Agnes were three of the 253 people that lost their lives in the nearly-coordinated explosions that shook Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

At the time, three churches in Negombo, Batticaloa and Kochchikade District, as well as five popular luxury hotels, were chosen as targets by the terrorists.

Following the attacks, the government declared a curfew and cut off all access to social media services to prevent misinformation and rumors from being spread.
