Car blast kills 1, wounds 20 in Kashmir
SRINAGAR | A bomb exploded Thursday in a car outside the main city of Indian-controlled Kashmir, killing the driver and wounding at least 20 others in what police said may have been an accident involving suspected rebels.
Authorities think a rebel was transporting the bomb when it went off accidentally in Bijbehara town, about 28 miles south of Srinagar, police officer Ramesh Jalla said.
The driver was killed in the blast, which occurred on a busy road. At least 20 others who had been passing by were wounded, including seven who were taken to a special hospital in Srinagar for treatment of multiple injuries.
One victim was in critical condition.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast.
