More bombs have been found in India after a spate of explosions killed at least 46 people and wounded dozens more.

Police said two devices were found in Ahmedabad, where 16 devices went off yesterday. Bomb-squad officers made them safe, to the relief of local people shocked by the violence.

Ahmedabad is mainly-Muslim, and was the scene six years ago of violent confrontations between Muslims and Hindus which killed some 2,000 people.

Other unexploded bombs were found in Surat. A little-known group called the Indian Mujahideen claimed the Ahmedabad attacks.

Terrorism experts have warned that disaffected Muslims, often a poor and neglected minority in India, could attack the state. The government says terrorists may be getting support and training from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has condemned the explosions and placed towns and cities across India on full alert.
