A Danish billionaire lost three of his four children in the Sri Lanka terror attacks. The family of Anders Holch Povlsen, a fashion tycoon and Denmark's wealthiest man, was visiting the country over the Easter holiday, a spokesperson tells the BBC. Povlsen, who has a net worth of $7.9 billion, is the largest shareholder in British clothing retailer Asos and owner of the fashion business Bestseller, which encompasses a number of brands, the Guardian reports.
The 46-year-old also has a number of investments in land and property, and is believed to be the UK's largest private landowner. Details on the deaths of his children were thin; per the Independent, this Instagram post from Povlsen's daughter Alma shows three of the family's children in Sri Lanka days before the bombings at churches and hotels killed at least 290. (An American on a work trip was also among the dead.)
