India - Terrorist attack in Mumbai - Taj hotel building

Fire fighters try to douse the fire as smoke rises from the Taj hotel building in Mumbai, 27 November 2008. According to the Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil, there could be 10 to 12 terrorists involved in the terror attack inside Taj Hotel. Terrorists have so far killed about 100 people and wounded more than 200 in a series of coordinated attacks which started late Wednesday across India's financial hub Mumbai, officials and news reports said. Heavily armed gunmen in groups of two to four opened fire with automatic weapons and lobbed grenades in 10 places in south Mumbai, including the five-star Taj and Trident hotels, the city's main railway terminus, a hospital, a cafe, a pub and a cinema hall. The targets seemed to be areas frequented by tourists.
