  2. Three explosions hit busy locations late Wednesday in India's business capital of Mumbai, where a terror seige three years ago killed 166 people.


    "It must be a bomb blast," Chhagan bhujbal, a state minister told a TV news channel. No details were immediately available on the cause.


    News channels reported that high alert declared across the city.


    The blasts hit the crowded neighbourhood of Dadar, the famed jewelry market Jhaveri Bazaar and the busy business district of Opera House, an official at the city's Police Control Room said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy.


    In 2008, a three-day terrorist siege by 10 armed men hit two luxury hotels, a Jewish centre and a railway station.
