Train bombings in Mumbai

Filed under: Ground Transport Security,Terrorist Threats & Attacks — by Christian Beckner on July 11, 2006

Seven separate explosions ripped through evening commuter trains in Mumbai, India today. The toll of casualties stands at 135+ dead and 400+ injured as of posting, and is likely to continue to rise. Most early reports cite Kashmiri separatists as the likely culprits, given a known preference for multiple simultaneous attacks and the fact that there were six grenade attacks in the Kashmiri city of Srinagar earlier today, killing seven. Is the fact that it occurred on the 11th of the month – like 9/11 and the 3/11 Madrid bombings – intentional?
