The Foreign Ministry reported that one Israeli tourist, Meir Karmian, was lightly injured in the blasts, and was expected to be flown back to Israel late Saturday night. Karmian, who was traveling in India with his wife and his two-and-a-half year old son, was hurt by flying glass. Staff at the embassy in New Delhi, which went on emergency footing immediately after the blast, were checking the hospitals to see if any other Israelis were wounded in the attack at the marketplaces, popular spots for tourists, while people form Beit Chabad in New Delhi were compiling names of Israelis who were safe and sound in the city. Israel's ambassador to India David Danieli advised Israeli tourists to stay away from busy marketplaces. Thousands of Israeli tourists are believed to be in India, though the Foreign Ministry did not have a precise figure.
