Bomb explosion in hospital in Agra in northern India kills at least 8 people

At least 8 people were injured when a crude bomb exploded in a hospital in the northern Indian tourist city of Agra, the local media reported on Saturday, citing police officials.

The small blast took place at the reception area of the Jai Hospital, television channels said.

The explosion comes a week after a bomb, hidden in a briefcase, exploded outside New Delhi's High Court, killing 15 people. A Pakistani-linked Islamist militant group has claimed responsibility for that blast.

No further information was immediately available.
