Terrorists in Mumbai attack Hotels, Holding Hostages- 80 people dead over 250 wounded
Including police headquarters.
The hotels targeted are the luxury hotels - Taj Mahal and Oberoi. Apparently the Taj Mahal is on fire and an unknown number of people - many of whom are western tourists - are being held hostage.
The report does not say what affliation this group is with. They are just called terrorists.

This is a DIRECT attack on the US, these terrorists are asking people for their passports, and when it is revealed that they are US Citizens they are being killed the people from that country are being let go. This was an orchestrated attack on the US, on another countries soil. The US is under attack YET again!Be Kind to yourself, you are worth it!

As I understand it so far, the Taj Hotel is on fire, but that is different from the Taj Majal.

I can't believe that this plan didn't leak somehow. Obviously no one was aware this was going to take place.
Prayers for the safety for all the innocent folks over there.

According to what I've seen on AOL, it was British and Americans being targeted. Here's a few links. It looks bad.

I am afraid this MIGHT be the first of many bad shoes to drop, in other areas. It appears to have been carefully planned.
A recent broadcast had a woman on a cell phone staying in the ballroom of one of the hotels with others.
Praying for the innocent souls caught in this terror plot.

This Is A Must Read From A Canadian who Escaped Mumbai
I found this link on Twitter. This is an e-mail found on a blog from a Canadian business man. He thinks he was lucky..I think someone "upstairs" was looking after him!
