Mumbai Terrorism Updates

World • Views: 1,971

Bad news from Mumbai about the hostages at the Chabad center, contradicting earlier reports that they had been freed: ’Five hostages killed at Mumbai Chabad House’.

Israel’s ZAKA rescue service earlier said five hostages and two gunmen were killed inside the center, one of 10 sites in India’s commercial capital that gunmen attacked beginning Wednesday night. The rescue service, which sent a delegation to Mumbai on Thursday, did not identify the victims. …

Israeli diplomat Haim Choshen told Israeli television by telephone from the scene that the bodies of five hostages were found Friday after Indian security forces stormed the besieged Chabad center in Mumbai.

“Five bodies of hostages have been found inside the Chabad House,” Choshen told Channel 2. “We still don’t know whose bodies.”


UPDATE at 11/28/08 8:42:39 am:

Indian authorities are saying that some of the terrorists in Mumbai were British.

Two British-born Pakistanis were among eight gunmen seized by Indian commandos who stormed buildings to free hostages, Vilasrao Deshmukh, the chief minister of Mumbai, reportedly said.

The Foreign Office earlier said it was investigating reports on NDTV, a local television news channel, that the terrorists - who swarmed luxury hotels and other tourist sites in the city - included “British citizens of Pakistani origin”.

UPDATE at 11/28/08 8:55:18 am:

Some American Muslims are justifying the massacre and refusing to denounce it, and blaming it on either Israel or America.

For example: The Ignored Puzzle Pieces of Knowledge � Mumbai Attacks.

And then there’s this creep, “Yousef al-Khattab,” aka Joseph Cohen.
