Fatal blasts hit train in Indian city of Chennai

Two blasts have ripped through two coaches of a train in the southern Indian city of Chennai killing a woman and injuring several other people.

The incident comes in the middle of India's staggered general election, but officials say they cannot confirm if the two events are linked.

The train was travelling from Bangalore in the south to Guwahati in the north-east.

No-one has claimed responsibility for the attack and police officials said they have no suspects.
