Serial Bomb Blast in Hyderabad
At least 15 people have been killed and 50 injured in a series of blasts in a busy commercial area of Hyderabad this evening.
Sources in the Home Ministry say the explosions appear to be a well-planned terror attack designed to cause maximum damage.
The explosions - at least two, possibly three, according to sources - took place at rush hour, five minutes apart, near a cinema in Dilsukhnagar, which has a large fruit and vegetable market.
Officials were finding it tough to clear the packed area which has a maze of narrow lanes. Cellphone networks have been jammed in and around Dilsukhnagar to prevent false information from being disseminated.
In 2007, twin blasts in the city killed 40 people.
