A bombing at a famous Muslim shrine in northern India killed at least two people and wounded 17 others ahead of one of the holiest days of the Muslim calendar, police said. The blast at the shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, a 12th century sufi Muslim saint, took place just after dusk on Thursday as hundreds of men and women broke the daily fasts they observe during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The explosion appeared to have been caused by a small bomb packed inside a tin lunch box, said S. Sengthir, the police superintendent in Ajmer where the shrine is located. Ajmer's top official, Naveen Mahajan, said at least two people had been killed and 17 wounded.
