E-mail Warns of Attacks on New Delhi, Mumbai
Foreign militants could be planning to bomb two of India’s major cities, the U.S. Embassy warned.
An e-mail sent to Americans registered with the U.S. Embassy said New Delhi, the capital, and Mumbai, formerly Bombay, the country’s financial and entertainment hub, were the targets of the alleged plot.
The attacks were believed to be planned around India’s Independence Day celebrations Aug. 15.
Embassy officials verified the e-mail but said little else. An Indian official said authorities were looking into the matter.
