Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon will leave India for home on Wednesday, a day earlier than scheduled, in the wake of twin bomb blasts in Israel, an official said.
"The Prime Minister has decided to curtail his trip following the attacks," a source in Sharon's office said.
Palestinian suicide bombers killed at least 15 people in two separate attacks just hours apart in Israel on Tuesday, dealing two shattering blows to a collapsing US-backed peace plan.
