A large bomb rigged to a highway overpass in the main city of Indian Kashmir exploded Wednesday, injuring at least 22 people and showering concrete and rubble on nearby shops and rush-hour traffic. The explosive device appeared to have been placed inside a police booth that sat at the end of a major overpass near the high court and the city's business district, said senior police official Afadul Mujtaba. At least 22 people were injured in the blast, two critically, and 11 were quickly discharged after being treated for minor injuries, said Dr. Waseem Qureshi, the medical superintendent at Srinagar's main hospital SMHS Hospital. He said the rest were still being treated.
