Blasts rock 2 New Delhi cinemas
At least 45 people injured, police say
NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- Two movie theaters in New Delhi were struck by explosions Sunday evening, killing at least one person and leaving at least 45 people wounded, police and officials said.
One of the blasts came from a seat inside Liberty Theater. The blast at Satyam theater came from a toilet, police chief K.K. Paul said.
Delhi's chief minister Sheila Dikshit said 38 people were wounded at Liberty Theater and seven at Satyam.
Both theaters were showing a controversial film that some around the country have called offensive to Sikhs, a minority in India.
Police did not immediately call the explosions the result of attacks, and the exact cause was not known.
Hundreds of people were in the theaters at the time of the explosions, both of which came about 8:30 p.m. local time (11 a.m. ET), Paul said.
Both blasts sent shards of glass flying, and created chaos. Crowds gathered outside each site, but steadily dissipated.
