The death toll in three separate explosions in the Hindu holy city of Varanasi in northern India has risen to at least 15, with some 60 others wounded.
Police say the first explosion targeted one of the most revered Hindu temples known as "Sankat Mochan," which was crowded with worshippers. The second blast occurred at the main train station during the evening rush hour, and a third explosion was reported inside a train.
According to local media, police have defused at least six other bombs across Varanasi.
There was no claim of responsibility, and India's Home Secretary V.K. Duggal said it was too early to say who was behind the attacks. All state governments have been put on high alert, and security at large temples has been increased.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh condemned the blasts and appealed for calm. His spokesman said the government is dealing with the situation and that people should maintain the peace.
