Bombs kill 38 people in latest Indian city attack

Three bombs within minutes, one at a street-side food stall and two in an amusement park, killed at least 38 people in a southern Indian city on Saturday in the latest in a series of attacks on urban centers.

More than 70 people were wounded in the blasts in Hyderabad, a city with a history of communal violence, and where nearly a dozen people were killed when a mosque was bombed in May.

There was no claim of responsibility.

"The blasts took place almost simultaneously and we are still counting the number of dead," said Balwinder Singh, the city's police commissioner.
