Mumbai: Mumbai was rocked by 12 powerful bomb blasts 20 years ago, in what were India's first major, precisely co-ordinated serial explosions that claimed more than 260 lives and left the country stunned.

The blasts, which ripped the country's commercial capital March 12, 1993, were a revenge attack for the December 1992-January 1993 bloody riots in the city. The riots had occurred after the December 6, 1992 demolition of the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya by Hindu groups.

Here is a list of the sites targeted in March 1993, the time at which the blasts occurred and the number of lives lost at each site.
