3 bombs discovered on train in India
Police discovered three bombs hidden in a train parked at Calcutta's main railroad station on Monday and safely removed them, police said.

The discovery comes days after a bomb went off in a mosque in the southern city of Hyderabad, killing 11 people.

"Our people were on a routine search of trains and found the bombs in one of the trains," said Amarkanti Sarkar, Inspector General of Railway Police.

No one claimed responsibility for planting the bombs, and police said it was too soon to name a suspect.

The train was set to travel from the Howrah railroad station in Calcutta to Tarakeswar, a small town sacred to Hindus some 50 miles west of Calcutta. Hundreds of pilgrims use the train daily.
