U.S. Warns India of Terror Threats
Posted on Aug 11, 2006
The U.S. Embassy has told India that it has information suggesting that terror attacks might occur in the political and economic capitals—Delhi and Mumbai. The Indian government has yet to receive any specific information. The warning comes only a month after more than 180 people were killed when a series of bombs exploded on a commuter train in Mumbai.
The embassy said it had information that foreign terrorists were planning to carry out bomb attacks around the two cities.
Mumbai’s police chief says he is increasing security because the city is facing attacks.
AN Roy was speaking one month after more than 180 people in Mumbai were killed by a series of bomb attacks on commuter trains.
“We do get intelligence inputs that some more attempts are likely to be made at some time,” he told the BBC.
