The 2010 Pune bombing occurred on 13 February 2010, when a bomb exploded in a bakery in Pune, Maharashtra, India. The blast at the German Bakery killed at least nine people, and injured at least 45 more. The bakery, which is popular with tourists and citizens alike, was busy at the time of the blast. An Italian woman and an Iranian student were among the nine killed. The bomb went off after a waiter opened an unattended bag and triggered an improvised explosive device. This is the first major terror attack in India since the 26 November 2008 Mumbai attacks. The German Bakery is located near a Jewish centre and the Osho ashram. The ashram and the bakery are frequented by foreigners.
