India vows to find person behind Israel attack
Question of the Day
NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian investigators were searching Tuesday for the motorcycle assailant who attached a bomb to an Israeli diplomatic car in the heart of New Delhi in an attack the Jewish state blamed on Iran or its proxies.
The blast in New Delhi set a car ablaze and wounded four people, including an Israeli Embassy driver and a diplomat’s wife, who was in critical, but stable, condition.
Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said the strike appeared to be a terror attack carried out by a “very well-trained person.”
Iran is a strong Indian ally and a steady oil supplier to the energy-starved country.
India declined to cast blame for the attack in the heart of its capital, just a few hundred yards (meters) from the prime minister’s residence.
“At the moment, I am not pointing a finger at any particular group or any particular organization. But whoever did it, we condemn it in the strongest terms,” Chidambaram said.
Indian security experts say that scores of students from north India go every year to the Iranian holy city of Qom for religious studies and many maintain contacts there.
Israel sent forensic scientists from its police force to New Delhi to search for clues as to who carried out the attacks, an Israeli government official said.
The embassy declined to provide details of the investigation.
“There is day-to-day cooperation between Israeli authorities and Indian security authorities. Very close cooperation,” Israeli Embassy spokesman David Goldfarb said.
Israeli officials said they expected the attacks would not be isolated.
“No doubt we face a wave of terror,” Cabinet Minister Dan Meridor told Israel Radio on Tuesday.
The attack took place just after 3 p.m. Monday, when Tal Yehoshua-Koren, the wife of a Defense Ministry official based in New Delhi, was heading to the American Embassy School to pick up her children, police said.
