At least 65 people died as 11 bombs ripped through Indian towns in an apparently co-ordinated attack yesterday.
Up to 335 others were wounded by the explosions, many of which were in crowded markets in the troubled north-eastern Assam state. Some bombs were hidden in motorcycles or scooters.
Assam has been a focus of a separatist insurgency for decades. But recent bomb attacks have been blamed on Islamist militants from Bangladesh.
Officials said 33 were killed in four blasts in the state's capital, Guwahati. The other 32 were killed in three other towns in the state.
Television channels showed some people lying on the streets, their clothes soaked in blood. Some of the walking wounded were helped into ambulances by local people and police.
'Immediately after the blast there was complete darkness for a while and I later saw several bodies and severed limbs all around,' said Bikash Goyal, a witness in Guwahati.
