MUMBAI, India – Police found explosives hidden in a bag in Mumbai's main train station Wednesday, which they said were left over from last week's attacks.

While searching 150 bags at the station, police found one that looked suspicious and called the bomb squad. They found two bombs of 4 kilograms (8.8 pounds) each inside and defused them, said Assistant Commissioner of Police Bapu Domre.

The news comes as Indian authorities face a growing wave of criticism about intelligence failures and bungled security that let 10 gunmen terrorize India's largest city for 60 hours, killing at least 171 people.

It was not immediately clear why the bombs hadn't been found earlier.

Authorities reopened Chhatrapati Shivaji train station and declared it safe Thursday morning, hours after the gunmen sprayed it with gunfire in one of their first attacks.
