Supporting that Souljah ITV are reporting that one bomb was in the South of the city in an industrial sector and are now referring to 'widespread attacks' across the city.

I still haven't heard of more than the four reported yet though.

i dont think this is Al Qaeda, they have no reason to strike India. Probably Pakistani militants, but i could be wrong.

Getting reports from sources that this is an area frequented by British and Israeli tourists primarily.

Twenty quid on the Iranians.


At least 25 feared killed in three big explosions in the crowded souk-hotel district of Paharganj in central New Delhi near the main railway station

CNN and Fox are reporting four explosions, perhaps they made one extra in case one did not go off.

This is a coordinated series of blasts timed within minutes of each other.

This doesn't bare the mark of Indian or Pakistani separatists because of the timing, bombing during a festival such as this would win them no supporters. It has all the hallmarks of al-Qaeda or another muslim extremist group.

Nobody is pointing the finger... yet.

Lets just wait and see where the blame goes.

There are more terrorist groups than Al Qaeda, India has suffered years of Islamic Militants attacks.

Skynews had someone of the phone stating that the finger is being pointed at an pointed islamic pakistani group

I might be wrong here, but I always thought India and Pakistan had a few issues between them and that Pakistani militants had attacked Indian targets before...can someone correct me if I have been misinformed.

I have also been led to believe that, generally, the terms 'Pakistani militants' and 'Al-Qaeda operatives' are interchangeable...again correct me if I am wrong. With this in mind, is the statement 'i dont think this is Al Qaeda, they have no reason to strike India' correct.

Also, to those people suggesting this is Iranian operatives, can I ask a question...do you work for right wing Western press outlets????

Edit: Spelling!!!

It doesn't matter who they are. All Islamic terrorist groups are lumped into the same melting pot.

They look to be small bombs, handbag sized or pipe bombs. I dont think we'll be seeing the body count rise over 20 but there is a risk of foreign nationals being killed.

Of course, we all know that Islamic terrorist adopt the Al Qaeda ideology. People need to understand that Al Qaeda is not a group, its an ideology that is used by other terrorist groups, which is more dangerous.

Let's just hope that there's no evidence of Pakistani complicity. The attacks a few years ago on the Indian parliament, which were planned and launched out of Pakistan, brought the two nations to the brink of nuclear war. I believe it was the closest they've came to another war in decades.

Experts have said that if there is to be a nuclear war somewhere in the world, it would likely be between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. To make matters worse we'd then have to worry about China and/or other nations getting involved.

Well, the attacks today could have been done by outsiders to spark a war in the region. But i dont think this will lead to a war between the two nations, well i hope not.
