Twin bombings in Taj Mahal city of Agra in India following IS threats
Just one day after a group aligned with the so-called “Islamic State” threatened to attack the Taj Mahal in Agra, two explosions struck the popular tourist city.
Two crude bombs exploded on Saturday – one near the Agra Cantonment Railway station and another on the rooftop of a nearby house.
“The blasts took place in the Shahganj area – one was at a garbage dump. No one was injured,” deputy inspector general of police Mahesh Mishra said, news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur reported.
“No terror angle has been established yet. Investigations are on,” Mishra said.
Local users posted images of the attack on social media.
