Indian holy city blasts kill 15, wound 60

LUCKNOW, India (Reuters) - At least 15 people were killed
and 60 wounded in three explosions in the north Indian Hindu
pilgrimage city of Varanasi on Tuesday, police said.

"Fifteen people have died and about 60 are injured. The
blasts were pretty big, and I do not rule out a terrorist hand
behind it," Navneet Sikera, senior superintendent of police for
Varanasi, told Reuters.
