3 killed in bomb attack at Ajmer

The death toll from a blast at one of India's most revered Muslim shrines in the northern state of Rajasthan rose to three yesterday as a worshipper succumbed to his injuries, police said.
Eighteen others have been hospitalised with injuries after the blast outside the Dargah Sharif, or holy Dargah, in the state's pilgrimage town of Ajmer, Police Inspector-General Nand Kishore told AFP.
"Six of them are in critical condition," he said, adding three of the 18 victims rushed to hospitals were children who were accompanying their parents to the ancient shrine.
Kishore said the complex was packed with 500 worshippers when the blast happened, with two Muslim men had died instantly in the blast.
