Indian Bomb Experts Search Mangled Train

Bomb experts searched a mangled Indian train coach Friday for traces of explosives used to trigger a blast that killed 11 people and injured 64 others. An investigation into the explosion Thursday at a suburban Bombay rail station focused on Islamic groups, but police declined to give further details. The attack came a day after the 10th anniversary of a series of bombings that killed more than 250 people and injured 1,000. Those bombings were allegedly carried out by groups seeking to avenge Muslim deaths in Hindu-Muslim riots. Police increased security Friday throughout Bombay, India’s commercial hub, with random searches of passengers and frequent warnings to be on the alert for suspicious packages. In New Delhi, police said say they defused six bombs at a train station, the Press Trust of India reported. The government of western Maharashtra state, which includes Bombay, said it feared there might be trouble around the anniversary of the previous bombings. Full Story
