HYDERABAD, India - India had intelligence warnings of a security threat several days before two bicycle bombs ripped through a market in the southern city of Hyderabad, the home minister said on Friday, adding that the death toll had risen to 14.

Six people were in critical condition after the near-simultaneous blasts on Thursday, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said after visiting the site and one of seven hospitals treating victims among the 119 wounded.

Police were deployed throughout Hyderabad to prevent outbreaks of violence between Hindus and Muslims in the city, which has recently witnessed tension between the two communities. Similar attacks have led to clashes.
