Mumbai blasts

Three bombs rocked crowded districts of Mumbai during rush hour on Wednesday, killing at least 21 people in the biggest militant attack on India's financial capital since 2008.

Security analysts say the pattern of the attack points to a local militant group called the Indian Mujahideen (IM). The Indian Mujahideen is described by global intelligence firm Stratfor as "a relatively amateurish group that's been able to carry out low to medium intensity attacks." While its members are mostly local Muslims, the group is suspected of having been trained and backed by militant groups in neighboring Pakistan and Bangladesh.

There is a possibility the latest strike could be aimed at scuttling fledgling attempts to revive the peace process between New Delhi and Islamabad.

IMO: Or/and maybe HuT could be involved, they have about 10,000 rather nondescript members and seek a nuclear caliphate in Pak. The HuT coup in Pakistan seems to have recently been prevented, maybe involving Brig. Gen. Ali Khan.
