This could have been much worse as 4 unexploded bombs were also found. It is bad enough, however:
Three explosions within minutes, one at a street-side food stall and two in an amusement park, killed at least 34 people in Hyderabad on Saturday, police and officials said.
More than 50 people were wounded in the blasts in a city with a history of communal violence, and where nearly a dozen people were killed when a mosque was bombed in May.
Officials said at least one of Saturday evening's blasts was likely to have been a bomb.
The most deadly of the blasts in Hyderabad was at a road-side food stand, where at least 24 people were killed, police said.
The other target was the Lumbini amusement park where at least two blasts occurred around 7:40 p.m. local time during a popular laser show, TV channels said.
"I saw chairs flying in the air along with bodies," said Vineet, a young man who had been watching the show with about 200 other people.
Four unexploded bombs were also found, two in Lumbini and two others in cinemas in the city, which were defused once people had been evacuated, police said.
***Update 8:40 PM CT***
Death toll rises, at least 41 people killed. Explosives found at 16 other locations.
The death toll continued to rise in southern India, where two blasts Saturday night killed at least 41 people in Hyderabad in what authorities are calling terrorists attacks.
More than 60 people were wounded, several critically, police said.
But the carnage could have been worse.
Authorities also found explosives at 16 other locations in and near Hyderabad, said Y.S.R. Reddy, chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state.
Security was beefed up at the airport and railroads after police said the almost simultaneous blasts were coordinated attacks.
"This is definitely terrorist activity," Reddy said, urging everyone to stay calm. He scheduled a Cabinet meeting Sunday morning to discuss the incidents.
