The nihilist Stepan Khalturin, a member of the Russian secret society, Narodnaya Volya, detonated a bomb in the Winter Palace in Russia: eight soldiers died

I mean, yeah, when you're trying to kill a key figure chances are you gotta handle the guards too.

In the melee, a homemade bomb was thrown at the police, killing one of them and wounding another.

Continuing to see no real indiscriminate attack there; there's a clear target for a clear reason.

Of course, many of the attacks listed were indiscriminate, careless, and horrifying (Santiago Salvador), but far from all of them.

I guess they count it as indiscriminate whenever a bomb is used because there's no telling who could be caught in the blast.
