Blast survivor was wounded again in India attack
HYDERABAD, India (AFP) - A man injured in Thursday's twin blasts that killed at least 14 people in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad had lost his leg in an earlier attack on the city, his father said Friday.
Abdul Wasif Mirza, a 25-year-old clothes hawker, was badly hurt in 2007 when a bomb exploded at a city mosque, according to local media reports.
"I had no hope he would survive but God was kind and the doctors provided very good treatment and his life was saved," his father Shahid Mirza told reporters on Friday.
"Now, three to four years later - after he was able to be normal again - this incident has happened," Mirza said.
