Gujarat rocked by a series of bomb blasts. "It appears that the bombs are crudely made bombs and intended to create a panic" says a police spokesman. About a dozen people were injured in three explosions in the city of Ahmedabad.

Reminds me of the Bombay blasts from the mid '90s, although back then the terrorists used RDX.

I wish they didn't pull out old file pictures of rioting to accompany the article. If you don't have pictures of the actual event don't fake it with filler and hope people don't read the captions.

My first reaction was "Oh, that looks bad" followed by "That doesn't look right" and then "Oh, filler pictures" after I read the captions.

Uhm... aren't all (terrorist) bombs intended to create a panic?

Not really, some are for killing.
