India Attack Seeks To End Negotiations

It has been over a year since Islamic fundamentalists launched a coordinated attack on the Indian city of Mumbai which resulted in extensive casualties. One fall out of the attack was for India to halt any further attempts to enter into negotiations with Pakistan which it believed was behind the assault. Last week, the government of India finally reached out to Pakistan in order to resume discussions on important issues that separate both countries. Yesterday, a bomber set off explosions in a popular restaurant known as The German Bakery and the result was nine dead and 57 wounded. Within hours of the bombing, conservatives in the Indian Parliament called for the end of any possible discussions with Pakistan.

It is rather simple, just set off a bomb and it is certainly going to result in the bombing out of any talks between India and Pakistan.
