A month out from the city playing host to the inaugural Indian Grand Prix, New Delhi is now trying to pick up the pieces from one of its worst terrorist attacks.
At least eleven people have been killed and many more injured after a briefcase containing a bomb was detonated outside the city’s High Court; a Pakistani military group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
Last July, 25 people were killed in attacks on Mumbai, the country’s most populous city.
The attack will heighten concerns about the nation’s security procedures and vulnerabilities. As yet, no leading officials from Formula 1 have expressed any concerns about the upcoming Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit.
