For the second day in a row, terrorists have launched coordinated bomb attacks in India. This time, more than a dozen bombs went off within 36 minutes in the western city of Ahmedabad. At least 29 are dead and more than 100 wounded; two of the bombs targeted hospital emergency rooms to which victims of earlier bombs had been rushed. Many of the victims were struck by flying nuts and bolts that were packed with the explosives. A Muslim extremist group admitted guilt in connection with the attacks.
Narendra Modi, the chief minister of Gujarat state, said, “Terrorists are waging a war against India. We should be prepared for a long battle against terrorism.”
