WOODBURY - Long Island's East Indian community is feeling the repercussions after three separate bombs detonated in Mumbai today, killing at least 21 people.

Investigators are calling the events a coordinated terrorist attack. They say the targets were all busy commercial areas, bustling with people at the height of their evening rush.

The latest bombing is the third terrorist attack in Mumbai since 2006. Long Islanders with loved ones in India say they don't understand how it's happened again and are worried that this time won't be the last.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack; however, Pakistani intelligence has been linked to past incidents in Mumbai. If implicated this time, it could derail peace talks between the two nuclear powers, who are both American allies.
