Eleven Killed in India Bombings

At least 11 people have been killed and 50 injured in bombings in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad.

Police reported that at least two blasts occurred Thursday minutes apart outside a movie theater and near a bus stop in crowded areas of the city.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called the blasts "a dastardly act" -- adding that "the guilty will not go unpunished." He also appealed for calm in the wake of the apparent terrorist attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Earlier this month, India hanged a Kashmiri man for a deadly attack on India's parliament in 2001. The execution sparked clashes in Kashmir between protesters and police in which dozens of people were injured.



Hyderabad has a population of nearly 7 million people.
