The death toll from a bomb blast in Indian Kashmir has risen to at least 14 people, after more people succumbed to their injuries.
Security officials say the explosion Monday at a busy market in Pulwama, south of Srinagar, also wounded more than 70 others and damaged a school, a police station and several shops.
The officials say three soldiers are among the dead. Authorities say the bomb was planted aboard a truck carrying construction materials. The charred remains of a man who they say detonated the explosion was recovered from the scene.
Police fired tear gas to disperse mobs of angry and grief-stricken people who poured into the streets of Pulwama to denounce the attack. No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
But the French News Agency quotes a military official who blames Islamic militants for the blast.
