Dozens killed in blasts in Indian city


Three explosions within minutes, one at a street-side food stall and two in an amusement park have killed at least 34 people in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad.

More than 50 people were wounded in the blasts in a city with a history of communal violence, and where nearly a dozen people were killed when a mosque was bombed in May.

Officials said at least one of Saturday evening’s blasts was likely to have been a bomb as four unexploded devices were later found.

In the last few years a series of bomb blasts have hit India and killed hundreds of people, the most deadly of which was an attack on Mumbai’s railway system last July.

Indian police and security analysts have blamed Islamic militant groups in Pakistan for previous attacks and say they have been using hardline Indian Muslims to plant bombs in an attempt to cover their cross-border links.
