    The first explosion took place in south Mumbai's Zaveri Bazaar, near the famous Mumbadevi temple, in which some people were injured, said Mumbai police spokesperson Nisar Tamboli.

    A frame grab from Indian television channel Star TV, shows bystanders and security …

    MUMBAI, India (AP) - Three explosions hit busy locations late Wednesday in India's business capital of Mumbai, where a terror siege nearly three years ago killed 166 people."It must be a bomb blast," Chhagan Bhujbal, a state minister told a TV news channel. No details were immediately available on the cause or if there were any casualties.

    News channels reported a high alert was declared across the city.

    The blasts hit the crowded Dadar neighborhood, the famed jewelry market Jhaveri Bazaar and the busy business district of Opera House, an official at the city's Police Control Room said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy.

    The explosions happened around 7 p.m., when all the neighborhoods would have been packed with office workers and commuters.

    The blasts - if confirmed as a terror strike - would mark the first major attack on Mumbai since 10 militants laid siege to India'sfinancial capital for 60 hours in November 2008.

    That attack, which targeted two luxury hotels, a Jewish center and a busy train station, was blamed on Pakistan-based militant groups. The attacks escalated tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals and prompted them to suspend peace talks.

    However, the talks have recently resumed.
