Chilling CCTV footage captured one of the Sri Lankan Easter Sunday suicide bombers patting a little girl on the head moments before launching an attack that ISIS have claimed responsibility for.

The terrorist can be seen sauntering towards St Sebastian’s Church in Negombo while wearing a large backpack containing a ‘crude device made locally’ that was used to massacre Christian worshippers.

The Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, said at least 110 people died in the St Sebastian’s blast, the deadliest in a series of attacks against churches and luxury hotels that killed 321 people in total and left more than 500 injured.

It comes as all seven of the suicide bombers who carried out the devastating Sri Lanka Easter Sunday bombings were pictured together in an image released by ISIS.

ISIS’s news agency Amaq posted a picture on Twitter claiming to identify the seven attackers as Abu Ubayda, Abu al-Mukhtar, Abu Khalil, Abu Hamza, Abu al-Bara’a, Abu Muhammad, and Abu Abdullah.

It shows them standing in front of an ISIS flag wearing black robes and masks over their faces while carrying knives.

A total of eight people can be seen in the photo, despite the Amaq statement mentioning seven bombers.
