More death courtesy of the RoP

It's being reported that seven explosions have struck the train system in Mumbai (Bombay), India. The AP currently reports at least 20 dead, but Fox News Channel is now reporting a death toll of at least 80.

Of course, the AP can't quite bring itself to say who may be responsible or indeed what may have even happened:
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for what appeared to be bombings, but the blasts came in quick succession — a common tactic employed by Kashmiri militants that have repeatedly targeted India's cities.
Those "Kashmiri militants" are not Amish.

Update @ 11:05 EDT: The AP article now states more than 100 dead.

Update @ 11:10 EDT: The train bombings may have been timed to coincide with grenade attacks in Srinagar in Kashmir.
