(Reuters) - A fifth-grade student at an exclusive private school in Washington, D.C., and a Denver man on a business trip were among the U.S. residents killed in the Sri Lanka Easter attacks, a media report and the man’s employer said on Monday.

Suspected suicide bombers set off explosions in at least seven churches and hotels in the capital Colombo on Easter Sunday, killing 290 people and wounding nearly 500.

At least four U.S. citizens were killed and several were seriously injured in the attacks, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said.

Kieran Shafritz de Zoysa, a fifth-grader at Sidwell Friends, died in one of the blasts, the school emailed to friends and family, according to WJLA television in Washington.

Kieran was living in Sri Lanka, on leave from the school and expected to return, the email said. Fifth-graders are around 10 years old.
