Sri Lanka Bomber Used Facebook to Urge Killing of ‘Non-Muslims,’ Including ‘Women and Children’

Radical imam and Sri Lanka bombing mastermind Mohamed Zahran Hashim wrote a series of Facebook posts before launching the Easter Sunday attacks that killed hundreds of people, in which he called for the murder of non-Muslims including women and children. The Facebook posts reportedly remained online as of Tuesday night despite numerous complaints from moderate Muslims.
