Capital at rush-hour Wednesday, killing at least ten people and injuring at least 50 in what officials described as another terror strike on the city hit by militants nearly three years ago. Indian media reported the Home Ministry had called the separate blasts in three busy locations a terror attack. No officials there could be independently reached for comment.

Read it on Global News: Terrorism suspected as near-simultaneous blasts kill 10 and injure 54 in Mumbai, India. One blast was in the crowded neighbourhood of Dadar in central Mumbai. The others were at the bazaar, which is a famed jewelry market, and the busy business district of Opera House, both in southern Mumbai and several miles (kilometres) apart, a police official said.

The official in the city's Police Control Room spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy. "It must be a bomb blast," Chhagan Bhujbal, a state minister told a TV news channel. The explosions happened around 7 p.m., when all the neighbourhoods would have been packed with office workers and commuters.

That attack, which targeted two luxury hotels, a Jewish centre and a busy train station, killed 166 people and was blamed on Pakistan-based militant groups. The attacks escalated tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals and prompted them to suspend peace talks.
