With one more person succumbing to his injuries, the toll due to the blast in German Bakery in Pune has risen to 16, hospital sources said on Wednesday.

Suleman, who was a first year BA student of Pune College, is the fifth foreign victim of the blast.

The blast also wounded 57 people, and is seen as the first major attack on India since the November 26, 2008 Mumbai terrors attack.
