A total of three bombs exploded in Mumbai during the evening rush hour today, killing 20 people and injuring 113, with officials expecting the numbers to rise. The explosions occurred in three busy areas of the city’s diamond district: Opera House, Dadar and Zaveri Bazaar (pictured above). This marks the second terror attack to rock the city of Mumbai in the past two-and-a-half years. Back in November 2008, Pakistani gunmen launched a dramatic terror attack that killed 164 people, including six American citizens.
