MUMBAI, India (AP) " India's home minister says three explosions that killed at least 10 in the financial hub of Mumbai appear to be a coordinated terror attack.

Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said the blasts wounded another 54 and the toll was expected to rise.

He said India inferred it was a coordinated attack by terrorists" because of the close timing of the blasts at evening rush hour Wednesday. They hit crowded neighborhoods and a famed jewelry bazaar.

A terror seige in Mumbai three years ago killed 166 people.
