Sri Lankan government links Easter Sunday attacks to small Islamist extremist group

The attack was carried out by several suicide bombers that let off explosives in churches and hotels across the country. Asha Castleberry — a national and foreign policy expert as well as a former member of the State Department mission to the United Nations — joins CBSN to discuss the connection between the extremist group and the terror attack.
