BOMBAY, India — More than 180 people were killed July 11 in a series of bombings that government officials are calling a well-coordinated terrorist attack.
Kashmiri militants are under suspicion by some for setting off the seven bombs, The Associated Press reported. The bombs targeted first class coaches.
The first bomb detonated at the Bandra train station at 6:20 a.m. Subsequent bombings were reported along the Western Railway line, according to published reports.
The bombings come a week after United States officials said they disrupted a terrorist plot to bomb the PATH network in New York and New Jersey.
Last year, 52 people were killed in subway bombings in London. In 2004, 191 people were killed in bombings in Madrid.
Meanwhile, a Chicago Transit Authority derailment reported about 5 p.m. July 11 was ruled not to be terrorism-related. Several people were reported to be in serious condition following the derailment.
