Sri Lanka is slowly recovering from a series of terrorist attacks that killed more than 350 people. It's an island country with a population of 22 million people. It's primarily Buddhist. 10% of the population are Muslim and 7% are Christian. The Christians were considered a peaceful group that never took part in inter-ethnic conflicts before. The majority of Sri Lankan Muslims were also pretty peaceful until recently, even though they were repeatedly attacked by radical Buddhists.
