After blasts, India's leader appeals for calm

AFP , MALEGAON, INDIA

Earlier this week, Singh had said intelligence agencies warned of further attacks in India that were likely to target religious centers and vital installations.

The country has been hit by a series of bomb attacks blamed on Islamic militants, including the holy Hindu city of Varanasi in March and the bombings of New Delhi shopping markets in October last year.

The Malegaon blasts came four days before verdicts are to be announced for 123 defendants in a long-running trial linked to 1993 bomb attacks in Mumbai.

Those attacks killed more than 250 people and were blamed on Islamic militants.
