The historic Mecca Masjid mosque in Hyderabad, India has been bombed:
At least five people have been killed in a bomb explosion at a historic mosque in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, the authorities say.
Many more were hurt in the blast during Friday prayers at the Mecca Masjid, one of India's biggest mosques.
Interior Minister Shivraj Patil said the explosion at the entrance to the mosque was caused by a "crude bomb".
Police say they also found and defused two live bombs near the mosque. It is not clear who carried out the attack.
The building pictured in the BBC article is not the Mecca Masjid, but rather the nearby Charminar, which is the symbol of Hyderabad. You can see the actual Mecca Masjid in the picture here. I am also in the picture, if you can pick me out of the crowd. The Charminar/Mecca Masjid/Laad Bazaar area of Hyderabad is one of the city's oldest, but it is also Muslim dominated. Exactly who would have placed the bombs is an interesting question.
