Three bombings today at crowded public places in a southern Indian metropolis killed at least 34 people and wounded 60 more, the Reuters reports. An Indian minister said the explosions that detonated minutes apart in Hyderabad were terrorism. Two ripped through an amusement park during a laser show, and the other rocked a crowded market area.
As a red alert rattled across the city, police found four other unexploded bombs in Hyderabad, a booming city with a history of clashes between Hindus and a Muslim minority. One official said the explosives used in today’s blasts were similar to those used to bomb a historic Hyderabad mosque in May.
