India restaurant bomb blast kills eight in Pune

At least eight people have been killed and 33 others wounded in a bomb attack on a restaurant in India’s western city of Pune, officials say.

The explosion tore through the German Bakery, which is popular with tourists, in Koregaon Park.

The blast, which Maharashtra state officials say was caused by a bomb, is the first major attack India has seen since the Mumbai bombings in 2008.

The nationalities of the dead are not known.

Several of the injured are reported to be foreign nationals, says BBC’s Chris Morris in Delhi.

The explosion at the restaurant, on North Main Road, happened at about 1900 (1330 GMT), when it was packed with diners.

“We heard a big noise and we all rushed out. The impact was so much that there were tiny body parts everywhere,” Vinod Dhale, who works at the restaurant, told Reuters news agency.
