Following the deadly attacks in Sri Lanka which killed 290 people, including many Catholics, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton refused to refer to the victims as Christians, preferring instead to call them "Easter worshippers".
The attacks, which were likely carried out by a local Islamist group with international support, targeted three churches in Negombo, Batticaloa and Colombo's Kochchikade district during Easter services. Luxury hotels were also targeted.
Barack Obama reacted to the attacks by tweeting, "The attacks on tourists and Easter worshippers in Sri Lanka are an attack on humanity."
This is in stark contrast to Obama's reaction to the New Zealand mosque massacre, when Obama specifically made reference to "the Muslim community".
