JAIPUR (AFP) – A series of bombs tore through crowded markets in the Indian tourist city of Jaipur late Tuesday, killing at least 60 people in what police said was a terror attack.
One of the bombs went off near a Hindu temple, leaving blood splattered on the street and cycles and rickshaws in a mangled heap, television showed.
“Sixty people have died and 150 are injured,” said Vasundhara Raje, chief minister of the desert state of Rajasthan of which Jaipur is the capital.
“We will not tolerate such activities at all,” he warned.
Police said seven blasts took place within minutes of each other in Jaipur, about 260 kilometres (160 miles) from New Delhi.
“It’s a terror attack. There was no (intelligence) report of this,” police director general A.S. Gill told television stations.
