Pune, Feb 20 (IANS) A 21-year-old Sudanese student who had been injured in the Feb 13 terror blast here died in a local hospital early Saturday, police said, taking the toll to 12.

Amjad Algo J died at Budhrani Hospital around 2 a.m. He was a second year student of Wadia College here, said a police officer. He was a member of the college volleyball team too.

He is the fourth foreign national to have died in the deadly blast. A Nepali worker, an Iranian student and an Italian woman were the other foreigners who were killed.

Thirty five more victims are still in hospital.

Two men are suspected to have carried RDX in their backpacks and left them inside the crowded German Bakery last Saturday. This triggered the blast that has killed 12 people and injured 57.

A little-known Pakistan-based terror group, the Lashkar-e-Taiba Al Alami (LeT-international), has claimed responsibility for the bombing.

The "spokesman" of the group called an Islamabad-based Indian journalist and claimed that the group carried out the attack.

Two people have been arrested in this connection.
