Just heard now that there have been 5 blasts. Channels are showing no casualities till now, but a relative informed that one lady is suspected to have been killed. Hope there will be no more casualities.

Damn! The rate at which terrorists are striking these days is just too alarming!

Sheesh, this is pathetic. BLR was mostly immune from these till this time.
All news-sites are flashing the news, but no official confirmation is yet got on this.

Cylinder blast?? At 5 places?? Media is reporting that gelatine sticks may have been used.

The above post reminds me of the story where the child cries out Fake alarms of a wolf everytime, and when it does strike, no one goes to help!
