Mumbai Train Blasts

There were at least 7 blasts killing 15 and injuring many in Mumbai's suburban trains today. I gathered some info you could use...
  • Please do not panic. Once you're safe, try and keep the rumours down and spirits high. Terrorists' main goal is to cause panic.
  • Once you make sure your friends n family are OK, please get OFF THE PHONE. Do not jam the phone lines. Others are dying to get thru!!
  • Again - do not spread rumours! Refer to media sources or real witnesses only.
