    Approximately a bit more than 3 and a half hours from the time of writing this message, Bombay has suffered eight bomb blasts in a period of eleven minutes. Seven out of the Eight blasts were in local trains, in the first class compartments only. The compartments were shattered, it is unknown what kind of explosive was used (Police is unsure whether it is RDX). The Eighth blast was on a railway station platform.

    Police urges the city to "stay calm", which is very very hard to do when just two days earlier, there was extreme violence in the city, which enforced shops and businesses in the city to close down for the day (it regards a political party, due to which I wont post details about that here.).

    At least 135 people have been reported dead and more than 300 injured. The attacks happened concurrently with a terrorist attack on Srinagar in Kashmir state of India.

    As a result of the bomb blast, railway services are currently shut down. Due to this, the Bus and other public transport systems are being used more, causing an intense traffic jam in the city. Many people have not got a transport and are stuck at various parts of the city with no way to get home.

    The terrorist attacks are getting too much. Its time the world stepped in together to stop this menace once and for all.

    What a mess... :thumbd: And why? Talking seems to be a much better way of solving differences...

    My thoughts go out to the injured, death and their families!

    Me and my family is OK, luckily....but lots of people are still out there, virtually stranded, because they are not getting transports. Whats more is that cell phone operators' networks are not working properly. Which means they cant even contact their families. :(

    Glad you and your family are safe indeed FireCat.

    I just do not understand human beings who are monsters with attitudes of...

    ...think like us...act like us...join us in our ways or we will make you die no matter who you are. Innocent and peaceful are the first this kind targets!

    Just makes me plain old :mad: :mad: :mad:
