Market Blast Kills 3 in Indian Kashmir

A bomb hidden inside a videocassette recorder exploded in a busy market in India’s portion of Kashmir on Sunday, killing three people and wounding 28 others, police said. The VCR had been brought to an electronics shop in the town of Rajauri to be repaired, police said. The bomb was apparently set off with a timer. The shop owner, his assistant and another person were killed instantly. Seven of the wounded were in critical condition, police said. Security officials cordoned off the area and were searching for the man who brought in the VCR. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the explosion. The area around Rajauri has seen repeated attacks over the past 13 years by Islamic militants fighting for Kashmir’s independence or merger with Pakistan. The town is 110 miles northwest of Jammu, the winter capital of Indian Kashmir. Full Story
