And we begin with -- this Fox News alert breaking news and new video from Mumbai India.
Where three large explosions have rocked that city we are getting reports that at least eight people are dead.
More than a hundred injured in what appears to be a series of coordinated tax.
The blasts coincide with the birthday of the only surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
Nearly three years ago those attacks killed 166.
Let's go to KT McFarland she's a Fox News national security analyst and host of Fox News dot coms.
On dot com lives Defcon three god are we talking about is it too early to assign responsibility here to figure out who's responsible -- yeah.
I get -- it is too early to resign response -- -- they've taken credit for this yet been a couple of things that we need to just keep in mind about that whole region.
You know the last terrorist attacks the Mumbai attacks the -- -- style terrorist attacks on the hotel.
And -- by those were ultimately Trace unofficially.
To the Pakistani intelligence services so.
I think we -- there a couple of sort of conclusions we wanna make prior to making any real conclusions which is this probably is their connection to Pakistan -- official or otherwise.
Is this the first attack that we're going to see in the only attack -- we're going to see.
Are they going to be more attacks and room -- or other places.
And third and probably most important how does affect Pakistani Indian relations.
You know less than rob boy that's been a border and a boiling point effort for decades they India and Pakistani relations.
We're talking to the Pakistan -- happened about what's your biggest problem is not India your biggest problem is internally.
In Pakistan and the Taliban and terrorist attacks against U.
But the Pakistan is there is saying on -- India so what you worry about.
John is that whoever's fault this is why it started what the results will finally be isn't -- -- an increase any tension between India and Pakistan.
And those are two countries that have nuclear weapons.
We are looking at live.
On air pictures from Indian television now the Indian state television in in television networks are reporting from.
The eight people killed so that's what our viewers are seeing there on the screen.
-- you know this comes on the heels of the assassination of president Karzai's brother.
Any will likely connection there.
You know I'm not clear.
And -- I rather doubt it although this is a part of the world where you're two weeks ago we saw an attack.
On the on the -- kind of hugged -- her talent -- this is a part of the world which is now boiling up again whether it's in Afghanistan.
Whether it's Sudan Pakistan where there is potentially in India those three countries are all linked.
-- have ties in Afghanistan the pakistanis are worried that the Indians are going to make inroads in -- Pakistan.
And Afghanistan as the United States leaves the region.
So again it's too soon to make any conclusions about what's going on but it is certainly time.
To start looking at not -- India and Pakistan but Pakistan and Afghanistan and what it's now become a very tense relationship.
Certainly sends me out of the raid -- as Osama bin Laden is the US Pakistani relationship.
