Bombs Aimed at India's Well-Off

Bombs Aimed at India's Well-Off - New York Times: "Ajai Sahni, a Delhi-based intelligence analyst who tracks terrorist groups in South Asia, said suspicion fell on Lashkar-e-Taiba less on the basis of specific evidence than on the record of past attacks in which it has been implicated — 11 in all since 1997 in Mumbai alone.

The explosions fueled a war of words between Indian and Pakistani officials, with the Pakistani foreign minister, Khurshid Kasuri, calling attention to sagging attempts to negotiate peace, and the spokesman for the Indian Foreign Ministry lashing out in return.

“We would urge Pakistan to take urgent steps to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on the territory under its control and act resolutely against individuals and groups who are responsible for terrorists’ violence,” said the Indian spokesman, Navtej Sarna."
