SRINAGAR, July 11: Seven tourists were killed and 35 people injured on Tuesday in a series of grenade attacks targeting holiday areas in the main city of revolt-hit held Kashmir, police said.

In the bloodiest of the attacks blamed on separatist rebels, six tourists including five women were killed and 15 people wounded when a grenade blasted a minibus in Srinagar’s main tourist district.

All of the tourists were from India’s West Bengal state. The dead included a mother, her son and her daughter-in-law.

The grenade was hurled by suspected rebels near the busy Dalgate area of the mountain-ringed Dal Lake here, he said. “It landed inside the minibus and exploded with a bang,” said an area resident.—AFP
