Terrorist angle needs confirmation

The blasts were most likely masterminded by Lashkar-e-Toiba, a terrorist group supported by Pakistan. The blast had all the hallmarks of being carried out by well-funded terrorist groups supported by Pakistan.
Delhi was the location of a terrorist attack in December 2001. The 2001 event was blamed on Islamic militant groups backed by Pakistan.
However, I did add a statement made by Pakistan forien minister for more NPOV. Karen 03:51, 30 October 2005 (UTC)Reply

Excuse me, but Pakistan does not support any terrorist groups. Infact, a number of such groups have banned in the past. This article is not NPOV.

If you really feel there's a point-of-view issue, then flag the story and go on to explain why. The story says Pakistan does not support any terrorists groups: "Pakistan strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in Delhi, which have resulted in the loss of a number of innocent lives." Giving statements from all sides is pretty much a neutral point of view. Add more points of view, perhaps that would help. Karen 17:08, 30 October 2005 (UTC)Reply

Similar story merged


Assertion by Inquilab


Here is the source saying Inquilab asserted these attacks: [1] (in french, sorry). -- 13:33, 30 October 2005 (UTC)Reply

Why was this story breaking news for so long?


I had to go to another source to see if there were new explosions. Change the front page.

It's breaking news until someone removes the breaking news template. I stated on IRC that since the story which was merged to this story was breaking news, I set the breaking news flag on the story and that it should be removed when no more new information was "breaking".

Fact checking


I don't see a BBC source which states 10 people have been detained. Can someone check again whether that factual statement is sourced? - Amgine / talk 19:27, 31 October 2005 (UTC)Reply
