KARACHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) – A suicide bomb attack which killed at least 53 people in the Pakistani capital Islamabad will be a big blow to foreign investment and will lead to further weakening of the rupee which is already trading at a record low, dealers and analysts said on Sunday.
A suicide attacker set off a huge truck bomb on Saturday night at the Marriott Hotel, part of a U.S.-based chain and a favourite haunt of diplomats and rich Pakistanis.
The Czech ambassador and an American and German national were among the dead, while more than 270 people were wounded in the worst militant attack in the capital.

“It’s a big blow for foreign investment as foreigners are going to feel less secure in investing in Pakistan and the fact that the government is not able to control these attacks does not leave much confidence in the market.”
The Pakistani rupee weakened to to a record low of 78.27 against the dollar on Saturday because of weak economic fundamentals and the global financial crisis.
It has lost 21.3 percent against the dollar since the beginning of the the year.
Dealers also said the market was short of dollars because of the central bank’s buy/swap operations. The central bank has been buying

DELHI, India, Sept. 13 (UPI) — A series of small bombs were detonated in crowded New Delhi marketplaces Saturday, killing at least 30 people, Indian authorities said.

Besides those killed, at least 90 people were injured in the five blasts police said occurred within 30 minutes of each other in the Karol Bagh, Greater Kailash and Connaught Place markets, the Times of India reported. Three more explosive devices were defused, including one at Children’s Park at India Gate, the newspaper said.

TV news channel CNN-IBN said it received an e-mail shortly before the blasts from a group calling itself the Indian Mujahedin.

“Do whatever you can. Stop us if you can,” the e-mail said.

Indian Mujahedin has claimed to be behind recent bombings in Jaipur and Bangalore.

Monday, 15 September 2008

Police are trawling slums and criminal hideouts in India’s capital rounding up suspects after serial bombings in the city on Saturday killed at least 21 people and wounded nearly 100.

Police said they were pursuing several leads, including talking to an 11-year-old boy who said he had seen two men drop off a large plastic bag at one of the blast sites.

At hospitals, relatives of victims accused police of failing to protect them. “Down with the police,” they shouted, some with tears in their eyes. “We don’t trust you any more.”

“Helpless?” read the banner headline of the Sunday Times newspaper, expressing growing frustration at the inability of authorities to prevent a string of bomb attacks in recent months…A group calling itself the Indian Mujahedin sent an email to television stations shortly after the first explosion saying it was responsible.
