Serial blasts rock Assam

October 30, 2008
Eleven serial blasts rocked several districts of Assam on Thursday, including three in Guwahati, killing 61 persons and injuring over 300 others.

The powerful bombs went off simultaneously at around 1130 IST, one of them exploding in front of the Kamrup district deputy commissioner's office in Guwahati, official sources said.

Thick smoke billowed after the high intensity blasts which turned a number of cars, cycles and two wheelers into mangled heaps of metal.
