From CNN IBN’s Terror strikes UP; blasts hit courts in 3 big cities:
Terror struck Uttar Pradesh on Friday, when serial blasts rocked courts in three cities across the state, killing at least 12 and injuring several others.
Official sources put the death toll at 5, though unofficially the death toll is close to 12. Of those, three were killed in Faizabad, seven others died in Varanasi and two people have been killed in Lucknow
A little-known outfit, called Indian Mujahideen, has claimed responsibility. UN intelligence agencies said senior UP police officials have received an email in which the outfit has owned up to the attacks.
Sadly, this is something we seem to be hearing about with alarming regularity.
