    New Delhi has sounded the alarm, after the triple bombing attack on Saturday, which cost the lives of 61 persons and the injuring of 200. The government has asked residents to avoid commuting, markets have closed and armed policemen have lined up around governmental buildings and busy areas. Moreover, at least 12 persons have been arrested since Saturday evening, and more than 50 interrogated by the Police. In the meantime, a previously unknown organisation from Kashmir, Inqilabi (Revolutionary) group, claimed responsibility of the attack, warning of new hits in the future. The authorities are investigating the authenticity of the claim. The global community condemned that attacks, and send its condolences to India and the victims families. UN General Secretary Kofi Annan voiced his repulsion. The triple attack was condemned by the EU Foreign Policy High Representative Javier Solana, French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and Pakistan. Italian Foreign Minister Gianfranco Fini voiced his repulsion.

    Aimed at Spreading Terror and Death

    The explosions drowned India in mourning, a few days before Diwali, the Celebration of Lights, the biggest Hinduism celebration. The explosions occurred within minutes from each other. Two of them occurred in the largest and busiest markets of the Indian capital, and the third, near a bus.

    Analysts noted that the perpetrators wanted to cause terror that is why they chose to strike during this time, in places where families would have been gathered.

    Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh convened an emergency meeting. Earlier, he stated that India will not put up with terrorism, avoiding to say who could be behind these attacks.

    However, today, certain newspapers pointed the finger at two extremist organisations based in Pakistan, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, which have been accused for similar actions in the past. There are many extremist organisations in India, but as per the experts, only Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed could organise attacks of such extent.
