Explosions in Mumbai

Our thoughts go out to everyone in the city of Mumbai, especially our fellow Metbloggers in the area.

Authors on Metroblogging Mumbai have been covering the aftermath of the seven explosions that rocked crowded commuter trains in and around the city during Mumbai’s Tuesday evening rush hour.

Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is the most populous city in India.

It is home to several important financial institutions – the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India, and the Reserve Bank of India.

Bloomberg’s most recent update on the situation has the death toll at 173 and the number of people injured at 490.

A first hand account of the blast, maps of the railway and real-time coverage of the aftermath in Mumbai is available on Metroblogging Mumbai.

    It’s really sad, and probably all too easy for terrorists to do this in countries without the money to have lots of security cameras or bomb-sniffing dogs. As an Indian-American, it hits home a little more.
