Netanyahu Blames Iran for Today's Two Attacks; Israeli Embassy Cars Hit in New Delhi, Tbilisi

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran today (February 13, 2012) for twin attempts to bomb people affiliated with the Israeli embassies in New Delhi, India and Tbilisi, Georgia, according to the Washington Post website.

The wife of an Israeli official in New Delhi and her driver were injured and hospitalized today in a blast from explosives slapped on their car by a passing motorcyclist. Around the same time, a grenade-type device was found duct-taped to the bottom of a car affiliated with the embassy in Tbilisi. It was defused without anyone being injured.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the incidents. But Netanyahu pointed a finger at Iran, which has vowed revenge against Israel for recent assassinations of scientists involved in its nuclear program.

Iran denied it had anything to do with either one of today's attacks.
