Two Explosions Kill at Least Eleven in Hyderabad -

Two blasts near a bus stop killed at least 11 people and injured dozens in the south Indian city of Hyderabad on Thursday night, in what officials said may be a coordinated terrorist attack.

“Two blasts took place in Diksukh Nagar in old Hyderabad,” Sushil Kumar Shinde, India’s home affairs minister, told journalists in New Delhi. The blasts came from two bicycles at two sites 150 meters away from each other, he said, and killed eight at one site and three at the other. About fifty people have been injured.

The central government had warned state governments earlier that an attack was planned, he said. “We have had some information for the last two days of such an incident,” Mr. Shinde said, and states had been alerted of the possibility of blasts. “At this stage it is difficult to say more,” he said, except that the death toll may go up.

Teams from the National Investigation Agency, the National Security Guard and the Intelligence Bureau are headed to the site, he said.

“This is a dastardly attack, the guilty will not go unpunished,” prime minister Manmohan Singh said on Twitter.

Hyderabad has been the site of frequent terrorist activities in recent years, particularly those using homemade bombs.
