This is the chilling moment one of the Sri Lanka bomber brothers nervously shuffles back and forth before deciding to blow himself up.
Millionaire brothers Inshaf and Ilham Ibrahim killed the eight British victims at the Shangri-La and Cinnamon Grand hotels in the capital Colombo.
They were the sons of one of the island’s richest men and were pictured for the first time today as the total death toll reached 359.
CCTV footage capture the moment Inshaf walked into the Cinnamon Grand’s packed Taprobane restaurant and detonated his vest as guests ate their breakfast on Easter Sunday.
With a large backpack strapped to his back, he hesitates for a moment before blowing himself up just after 9am.
Inshaf had reportedly used a fake name and said he was on a business trip when he checked into the hotel the night before.

The suicide bomber who studied in the UK was named earlier as Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed.
Mohamed is understood to have studied in the southeast of England between 2006 and 2007 and later did his postgraduate study in Australia before settling in Sri Lanka, security sources told Sky News.
Inshaf, 38, and Ilham, 36, were the sons of multi-millionaire spice trader Yoonus Ibrahim.
As police raided Ilham’s mansion hours after his attack, his pregnant wife Fatima blew herself up, killing her three children and three officers.
