The Religion of Explosions prefers to strike when other religions celebrate:
HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) — Two explosions within minutes killed at least 20 people in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad on Saturday, police said.
* At the time of this report the 3Â penny whores from the wire services pretend to be totally clueless why, how and who did it, but since we can be 99.9 % sure that it wasn’t Hindu’s, Jooozzz or Christians one should take a look at the usual suspects…
“At least 20 people have been killed in the two blasts within a gap of 10 minutes,” a senior police officer told Reuters.
One blast was at the Lumbini amusement park where a laser show was taking place, and the officer said it could have been caused by an “improvised explosive device”.
Seven people were killed immediately in the park explosion, and two died later in hospital.
The same police officer said another explosion at a street-side eatery was caused by a exploding gas cylinder and killed 11 people.
A total of 50 people were wounded in the two explosions.
The NDTV news channel showed what appeared to be at least two dead bodies slumped under rows of blue plastic seating in the park, both with blood-soaked clothing.
In May, 11 people were killed in a bomb blast in a historic mosque in Hyderabad — a communally sensitive city — and five died when police fired on protesters later
Update: 6 hours later and no dementi yet from the ummah?
That’s strange. But instead we have this:
HuJI behind twin blasts in Hyderabad: Centre
NEW DELHI: Central security agencies on Saturday night said that banned Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami militant outfit of Bangladesh was possibly behind the twin blast in Hyderabad in which 30 people were killed.
Sources in New Delhi said that there could be similarities between the explosives used in Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad in May this year and tonight’s explosion.
It was suspected that Shahid and Bilal, who were the masterminds of the Meacca Masjid blast, were also behind tonight’s explosion.
Shahid is reported to be in Karachi and is instrumental in bringing people for arms training from Hyderabad.
CBI has already procured a red-corner notice from Interpol against Shahid.
That will do it.
Who would have guessed it?
More than 60 people were wounded, several critically, police said.
“But the carnage could have been worse.”
Authorities also found explosives at 16 other locations in and near Hyderabad, said Y.S.R. Reddy, chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state.
Security was beefed up at the airport and railroads after police said the almost simultaneous blasts were coordinated attacks.
“This is definitely terrorist activity,” Reddy said, urging everyone to stay calm. He scheduled a Cabinet meeting Sunday morning to discuss the incidents.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh issued a statement expressing deep concern over the violence. India is no stranger to terror bombings, and memories of another deadly blast are still fresh in Hyderabad. The city — one of India’s biggest — has a history of tension between Hindus and Muslims, Al Reuters reported.
Please note that Al Reuters and the stinkers from Caliphate News Network refuse to point to the obvious: ISLAMIC JIHAD TERROR
Religion of Peace Strikes Again in Thailand
Another woman killed and 12 more people wounded in the south Thailand jihad: One dead, 12 injured in Thai bomb attack.
BANGKOK (AFP) – A Buddhist woman was killed and 12 others wounded, including six soldiers, when a roadside bomb exploded Saturday in Thailand’s restive Muslim-majority south, police said.
The seven-kilogram (15-pound) bomb went off in front of a grocery shop in Pattani, one of three insurgency-torn provinces bordering Malaysia, they said, adding the roadside bomb was detonated by remote control.
The bomb was aimed at patrolling soldiers who were providing security for Buddhist monks on their morning alms round, police said. Three monks were also wounded.
More than 2,500 people have been killed in the southern unrest since January 2004, with violence escalating despite a number of peace initiatives by the military-installed government.
Thai Jihad Continues, Today’s Atrocities:
A bomb hidden under a bench in front of a food shop killed one person and wounded 10 others in Thailand’s restive Muslim south.
The remote-controlled device exploded Saturday, while Buddhist Thais were waiting to give food to monks in the town of Pattani in one of three southernmost provinces where more than 2,500 people have been killed in violence since 2004 police said.
Two civilians were seriously wounded while the shop owner was killed.
The other wounded included monks and soldiers escorting them.
Nobody claims responsibility for the daily gun or bomb attacks in the far south, annexed by predominately Buddhist Thailand a century ago.
Eighty percent of the local population are Muslim, ethnic Malay and do not speak Thai as a first language.
Any bets on who did this? Congregationalists? Zarathustrians? Overzealous Jehovah Witnesses?
