ASOS Owner's Three Children Killed In Sri Lanka Attacks

Online clothing retailer Asos' owner Anders Holch Povlsen lost three of his four children in the Sri Lanka terror attacks that claimed the lives of almost 300 people.

Three children of billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen died in the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka on Sunday. Three of the couple's children have been killed in the Sri Lanka terrorist attack.

The Povlsens are also believed to the the largest private landowners in Scotland and the second largest in the United Kingdom, after acquiring several Scottish historic estates estimated to be more than 220,000 acres. Mr Stubkler requested the family's privacy be respected.

Sri Lankan officials yesterday said they believe local Islamist extremist group National Thowheeth Jama'ath to be behind the attacks.

"Unfortunately, we can confirm the reports", the spokesman said.

Thirteen arrests have been made, all of whom are Sri Lankans, police said.

The family were visiting Sri Lanka over the Easter holiday. They were staying at the Shangri La Hotel in the city of Colombo, which was among the targets in the widespread terror attacks.

A Danish billionaire has confirmed he lost three of his four children in the Easter Sunday suicide bombings in Sri Lanka, with the country's government invoking its emergency powers and ordering a curfew in the capital, Colombo.

He is Denmark's richest man, with his father passing down ownership of the global clothes retailer chain Bestseller when he was just 28 years old.

The couple's four children are Alma, Astrid, Agnes and Alfred.

Similarly Anders who is a nobleman in Denmark is also the owner with the second largest number of land in England.

Mr Holch Polvsen - Denmark's richest man with an estimated net work of £6.1 billion - paid £7.9 million to acquire the 42,000 acre Glenfeshie landholding in the Cairngorms 13 years ago.

The Dane is one of the largest private landowners in the United Kingdom; he owns 221,000 acres, or over one percent of Scotland.

They set up the company Wildland in 2007 with the stated aim of restoring and conserving landscapes for future generations.

Five Britons have been been confirmed dead, but the vast majority of the victims are Sri Lankan.
