Priest Delivers Emotional Speech at Vigil Outside London's Sri Lanka High Commission

A vigil was held in front of London’s Sri Lanka High Commission on Monday, April 22, to honor the victims of the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday bombings that killed hundreds.

This footage shows a priest, Fr. Sudham Perera, delivering an emotional speech outside the High Commission building and urging all present to come together and practice forgiveness. He leads the crowd in prayer in the latter half of the video.

Photographs from the scene show that a long line of candles were lit in remembrance of the Easter Sunday victims. Credit: Rishi Fernando via Storyful
