New Delhi (CNN) -- A series of small bombs went off in and around a world-famous Buddhist temple in eastern India Sunday, injuring two people, authorities said.

Four of the eight explosions occurred at the Mahabodhi temple complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Bihar state that houses a tree where Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment.

The temple itself was not damaged.

The other four blasts hit other sacred locations around Mahabodhi, said Bihar police official S.K. Bhardwaj.

A 50-year-old Tibetan and a 30-year-old Myanmar national were injured in the attack, Bhardwaj said.

Not funny....India and Pakistan have been on the cusps of nuclear war for a while now. I'd hate to see that happen anywhere on the planet.

What makes you think I'm kidding? I have a special affinity for the Indian people. Pakistan, not Iraq, not Libya, not Iran, not anywhere but Pakistan is the root of every single problem in the middle east.

Nuke em!
