MUMBAI, India (CNN) -- A series of seven explosions killed at least 145 people on crowded commuter trains and stations Tuesday evening in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai, police said.
Officials said 250 to 300 people were injured in the blasts in the city's western suburbs as commuters made their way home. All seven blasts came within an 11-minute span, between 6:24 and 6:35 p.m. (8:54 and 9:05 a.m. ET).
There was some confusion about the number of dead and injured as information was compiled from hospitals and explosion sites in Mumbai, the west Indian seaport previously called Bombay.
I was really sad to hear about this. my prayers and thoughts are with all the people there. I hope all my blogger friends in Mumbai are safe. My thoughts are with the families who have lost a loved one. My prayers for the ones who are injured.
