Three Gulf Arab nations have condemned the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka that have killed at least 138 people.

Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates all issued statements via their foreign ministries over the attack.

The UAE called upon ``the international community to close ranks and uproot the scourge of terrorism in order to ensure international peace and security.''

Qatar said it wanted to stress its ``its firm stance on rejecting violence and terrorism.''

Bahrain, meanwhile, said ``these acts of terrorism are incompatible with religious principles and human and moral values.''

The series of blasts at three churches and three luxury hotels killed at least 138 people.

It's the worst spout of violence in Sri Lanka since the South Asian country's bloody civil war ended a decade ago.
