At least 29 people were killed and 88 wounded when a series of small explosions hit the western Indian city of Ahmadabad on Saturday, a top official said, a day after seven similar blasts struck another city in the south. Narendra Modi, the chief minister of Gujarat state where Ahmadabad is located, said at least 16 small bombs went off Saturday evening in several neighborhoods of the busy city. Modi called the blasts "a crime against humanity." Most of the blasts took place in the narrow lanes of the older part of Ahmadabad, which is crowded with tightly packed homes and small businesses. Distraught relatives of the wounded crowded the city's hospitals and television channels showed video footage of police officers and sniffer dogs scouring the areas that were hit.
