TERROR: Sarojini Nagar market was packed at the time of the blast Alex Perry writes in Time:
In the grim, brief history of modern terror, there was little special about last Saturday's serial bomb attacks in New Delhi that killed at least 55, save this: there may never have been softer targets. "I saw one child, not more than six months old, its body split by the blast," said Paharganj handicrafts store-owner Neeraj Chawla. "And there was a family of shoppers. All dead, a mother and her children, lying on the ground with their arms apart. That's why I'm covered with blood. All the shop-owners rushed to pick them up." A senior Indian intelligence officer told TIME the coordination (police defused two further devices), planning and suspected use of RDX explosive pointed to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LET), a Pakistan-based group with ties to al-Qaeda that carries out regular attacks in Indian-administered Kashmir and across India. LET was behind a gun attack on the Indian Parliament in New Delhi in December 2001, and linked to a twin bomb attack on India's financial capital, Bombay, in August 2003.
