Sri Lanka is in shock after more than 200 people were killed in a wave of bomb blasts hit churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday.

4月21日复活节当天,斯里兰卡多个教堂和高级酒店遭遇一系列炸弹爆炸,导致200多人身亡,举国震惊。

A total of eight explosions had ripped through the country, with six blasts hitting in the morning and two in the afternoon, and the curfew was imposed from 6 pm Sunday to 6 am Monday, Xinhua News Agency reported.

据新华社报道,斯里兰卡共遭遇8起爆炸袭击,上午6起,下午2起,21日晚6点至22日早6点实施宵禁。

【单词讲解】

Blast和explosion均表示“爆炸”,可以替换使用,不过blast除了表示“爆炸”以外,还可以表示“(爆炸产生的)冲击波;强劲的气流;一阵...”等,比如:a blast of freezing rain(一阵冷冷的冰雨),a blast of anger(一股怒气),feel the blast from several miles away(感受到了几英里之外的冲击波)。

8起爆炸地点包括位于首都的科伦坡香格里拉大酒店、肉桂大酒店、金斯伯里大酒店和科伦坡代希瓦勒动物园附近一家酒店,位于科伦坡市内的圣安东尼教堂、位于市郊的圣塞巴斯蒂安教堂、位于东部城市拜蒂克洛的一座教堂和科伦坡德曼塔戈达地区一处住宅区。

The Sri Lankan government has also imposed a temporary ban on social media to prevent the spread of false information, Reuters reported.

据路透社报道,斯里兰卡政府还对社交媒体实行了临时禁令,以阻止虚假信息的传播。

【单词讲解】

Impose一般表示(政府或官方)推行、实行(某项政策),常用的搭配就是impose something on someone/something,比如上文中的impose a temporary ban on social media。如果看到某人impose oneself on others则表示“强行跟别人套近乎”。

Police confirmed that 35 foreigners died in the blasts, including British, Dutch and US citizens. Two Chinese nationals were among the dead, Xinhua reported, citing the Chinese embassy in Sri Lanka.

警方确认有35名外国人在爆炸中身亡,包括英国、荷兰以及美国公民,新华社援引中国驻斯里兰卡大使馆的消息称,有两名中国公民在爆炸中遇难。
