A bomb ripped through a packed movie theater in northern India, killing at least six people and wounding at least 30 others, authorities said. The blast in Ludhiana, an industrial town in Punjab state, was the second apparent terror attack this week in northern India. Two people were killed days earlier in the bombing of a venerated Muslim shrine in the neighboring state of Rajasthan. Sunday's attack occurred on one of the holiest days of the Muslim calendar, Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and came weeks before two major Hindu festivals, Dussehra and Diwali.
