Bombs in Dehli

Five explosions went off in crowded markets in New Dehli, India on Saturday the New York Times is reporting.

18 are dead and many are left wounded after these explosions- which are part of a string of terrorist attacks that have been happening across the country. According to Indian officials the attacks are trying to inflame tensions between Hindus and Muslims.

The BBC is reporting that a group called the "Indian Mujahideen" emailed a local TV channel before the attacks. The email reportedly said, " Do whatever you can. Stop us if you can." The group has claimed responsibility for other attacks.

The bombs went off in the shopping district Connaught Place, which is also a big draw for tourists.

The attacks have been condemned by the Indian government as well as the government of Pakistan.
