The World | IN BRIEF / INDIA

July 18, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Investigators said the powerful military explosive RDX, often used by Islamic militants in India's portion of Kashmir, was used in the deadly July 11 attack on Mumbai's commuter rail system.

Some Indians saw the announcement as further evidence of a link between Pakistan-based militants and the seven blasts on Mumbai's commuter train network that killed 182 people and injured more than 800.

Several rebel groups have been fighting since 1989 to end mostly Hindu India's rule over two-thirds of Kashmir, which is mostly Muslim.
