Train bombings in India?

July 11, 2006

Breaking news (via Chirol), and it isn’t good:

“At least 20 people have been killed in at least seven blasts on trains in the Indian financial capital, Mumbai (Bombay), police say.”

If confirmed, these strikes are reminiscent of the Madrid and London bombings. But, as Chirol notes, the added danger of these attacks is that if any links are established between the bombs and Pakistan would likely spark an international crisis between the two nuclear powers. Always a good thing.
