Diwali terrorism

The week's news at a glance.

Delhi

A group calling itself the Front for Islamic Uprising said it was behind three near-simultaneous bombings that killed more than 60 people in India’s capital last weekend. The group is not well-known, but police said it may be linked to the main Kashmiri separatists, Lashkar-e-Taiba. The bombings came just after India and Pakistan reached a landmark agreement to speed up earthquake relief by partially opening the border dividing Kashmir. Most of the bombing victims were women shopping for the biggest Hindu festival, Diwali, which started the next day. Diwali celebrates the victory of good over evil.
