Series of Bomb Blasts in Mumbai - 60 feared killed in Mumbai blasts

I feel so shocked and very sad about the blasts and don't understand the reason why these terrorists aim innocent people. What these people are doing wrong and why they are punished. Where it all gonna end.. Everything is so uncertain in Mumbai, The phone lines are not working, Communication down. How can someone contact his relatives and close people and make sure that they are safe. This is so worrying. :-( ..

Updates: I could contact to my relatives just few minutes back and they are safe by God's grace. I am continuously reading news being here in office.

News on diff news sites..

Yahoo – 6 explosions hit trains in Bombay
BBC – Blasts in India financial capital
Rediff – Serial blasts halt Mumbai’s Western Railway

Oh God, This is so depressing .. I am just reading what witnesses saw at the Bomb Blasts' sites here on rediff

Mumbai was shaken by six explosions in quick succession on Tuesday evening. The target was clearly the evening rush on the city's local trains. The first
blast occured in a first-class compartment of a local train near Khar station. The train was going from Churchgate to Borivili. The second blast took place
soon after at Mira road station, while the third occured at Matunga station. Reports said the Khar blast blew the train compartment to pieces. But there were
no early reports of casualties, but several people were reported to have been injured.

Updates: Seven blasts have taken place on different railway stations in the city. At least 60 people are feared killed in the series of blasts that rocked Mumbai today.
