An earthquake struck New Delhi Wednesday, shaking the city just hours after a deadly bomb exploded outside the high court.
It was a minor quake for the earthquake-prone city, coming in at 4.3 magnitude, but for the already-nervous populace, it rattled already frayed nerves.
A bomb blast struck the capital’s high court complex in the morning, killing 11 people and injuring at least 76. The violence was claimed by a terrorist organization seeking an immediate end to the prison sentence of Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri convicted for his role in a 2001 attack on India’s Parliament.
At first, people reported on Twitter that the shake made them think a second round of violence had started. However, after the first shock wore off, people quickly turned to humor to downplay the scare.
