Mumbai is under well planned terror attack.

A ship brought the terrorists in, offloaded them in small speed boats. They got off near a fishermen's colony with bags full of ammunitions and moved in sets of two. After offloading, the ship went back in the direction of Karachi, Pakistan. The ship is being chased by Indian Navy helicopters.

The terrorists holed up in two five star hotels and held around 40 hostages mostly Americans and British citizens. They also attacked cafe Leopold, a famous restaurant in south Mumbai.
They also moved in Nariman house, a residential building but occupied mostly with Jews people.

They opened fire randomly at passengers at platform no. 1 & 4 of VT station last night.

The rest of two ODI matches between England and India cancelled, England team returns home, will come back for 1st Test in Ahmedabad in Dec.

I am actually updating my blog with recent developments, whoever wants to see, can see it on my main blog. I can not give link here. PM me if you want it.

Such horrible shameless act.

Horrible and shameless indeed. My thoughts are with our Indian friends at this time.

Horrible act indeed, killing innocent people and spreading terror is an unpardonable act !!

The commando operation is the final stages at both the 5 star hotels and hope it will be flushed of terrorists in another couple of hours.

Yes, it is almost 48 hours and the urban war is still on.

Look at the atrocity, hatred and insanity they (terrorists) have.

The gunmen who carried out the assaults identified themselves as Deccan Mujahideen, a
previously unknown group. Mujahideen means holy warrior, someone who engages in jihad.
Therefore this is an act of islamic mass-murder in the same vein as Beslan, NY, Madrid,
London, Bali x 2, Jakarta x 2, internet head-loppings, etc etc.
No pathetic justification (oppression of the faithful, George Bush, American foreign
policy, Afghanistan, Iraq, abject poverty, blah, blah, blah) can obscure the root of this
violence.

If these people are unhappy with the world and are in the mood for a bit of a heavenly reward, why don't they find the nearest cliff and jump off it?

All the terrorists have been finally gunned down and one of them has been captured alive.

He will be a vital link for the investigators to track down the masters of this organised crime against humanity

One terrorist is captured alive and he has given important information how and who has planned this attack. All points finger to our neighbour country.
Now that FBI and Scotland yards are joining Indian intelligence for this investigation, the world will know the truth.

No, according to them they want to 'clean up' the world and while doing so if they die, they'll go to heaven else their 'allah' will not forgive them.
Total insane psychos, I must say.
