A Japanese woman was among the estimated 290 people killed in the terrorist bombings in Sri Lanka, Foreign Minister Taro Kono said April 22.

Four Japanese were among the 500 or so people injured in the bombings that occurred at eight places, including churches and hotels, on April 21.

“I feel deep sorrow and strong indignation,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters at the prime minister’s office in Tokyo. “I can’t accept such terrorism and strongly condemn it.”

The Foreign Ministry has not revealed the names of the Japanese victims in the attacks.

But government sources said Kaori Takahashi, who lived in the country, was the Japanese who died. They said that Takahashi’s husband, who is believed to be in his 30s, and their child were injured.

A man in his 30s who works at the Japanese Embassy in Sri Lanka and a male employee in his 40s with telecommunications giant KDDI Corp. were also injured.

KDDI said the employee was on a business trip and staying at a hotel in Colombo. The company said he was conscious and could walk.
