Three blasts rock Mumbai <br>

Mumbai: Thousands of people in Mumbai had difficulty in contacting their near and dear ones as the mobile network was jammed soon after the triple blasts in the city.

Though police said they have not asked the service providers for any such service, experts said that anxious people calling their relatives and friends could have resulted in the networks getting jammed. The situation eased considerably after 10 p.m.

Twenty-one people were killed Wednesday evening in three bomb attacks in Mumbai's Dadar West, Zaveri Bazar and Opera House. Over 140 people were injured.
