Major Terror Attack in Mumbai, India: 80 Killed, 900 Injured

m1.jpg2:00PM EST: UPDATES IN EXTENDED ARTICLE Gunmen targeted luxury hotels, a popular tourist attraction and a crowded train station in at least seven attacks in India’s financial capital Thursday, wounding 25 people, police and witnesses said.

It was not clear how many of those were dead or injured, but Indian television stations are reporting at least 20 dead, while Reuters puts the number at 10.

UPDATE 4:00PM EST: Mumbai: In one of the most violent terror attacks on Indian soil, Mumbai came under an unprecedented night attack as terrorists used heavy machine guns, including AK-47s, and grenades to strike at the city’s most high-profile targets — the hyper-busy CST (formerly VT) rail terminus; the landmark Taj Hotel at the Gateway and the luxury Oberoi Trident at Nariman Point; the domestic airport at Santa Cruz; the Cama and GT hospitals near CST; the Metro Adlabs multiplex and Mazgaon Dockyard – killing at least 80 and sending more than 900 to hospital, according to latest reports.

UPDATE 5:31PM EST: The Indian army reportedly is closing in on two luxury hotels where dozens of people were being held hostage in Mumbai, India, after attacks by terrorist gunmen who, eyewitnesses said, appeared to be targeting Americans and Britons.

The terrorists also targeted a popular tourist attraction and a crowded train station.

An organization calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen claimed it was behind attacks in the nation’s financial capitals, which began late Wednesday night. Nine suspected terrorists had been caught, India’s NMTV reported, and two were killed.

  1. Boy wouldn’t the Muslims love to do that here in New York City. Yes folks I said Muslims despite the U.N. resolution yesterday calling any type of critism of Islam to be categorized as hate speech.

  2. Hey, no mention that the Chabad House was also shot up and I saw somewhere that the Shliach was injured.
    Anyone have info on that?

  3. unnamed, so if it were only non-frum people it would be a joke? What did HaShem say to the Yidden when they sang by the Yam Suf, “My creations are dying…Why are you singing?” And those were the mitzrim!!! Every human being is created b’tzelem Elokim, not just a frum Yid.

  4. I said some tehilim for the shliach and his family. I should really leave my screen and go say alot mote tehillim. The matzav is very scary and critical. Hopefully the reports about the shliach is false.

    About the poster who posted that Jews are among the possible victims, he is right. All yidden are one family, and when a fellow family member is in trouble, it’s different than when a fellow human being is in trouble. IT HITS HOME! My heart goes out for all families who lost in any way from this tragedy whether Jewish or not.

  5. Hey, what do you want from unamed?

    He pointed out that its not a joke since frum people are involved (amongst others).

    Direct you ire to the one who made the joke.

  6. yes, gmab, there are many ppl there, frujm or not, and it is not a joke.. but even more so because frum ppl are invloved. i know ppl that might be there – and it is not a good feeling wondering if they are ok.

    (thank you yochi for sticking up for me)

  7. i seriously can’t believe you ppl are reprimanding me for saying “frum” ppl. im not a terrible person – i care about non-jews and non-frum, but the fact that i know ppl there makes me feel for the “frum” a bit more than the non.

    seriously, if you have nothign better to do then to make mountains out of molehills, go say some tehilim.

  8. bigaskan is a disgrace to frum people, callously making jokes like that. Do you also tell dead baby jokes around the shabbos table?

  9. please! we need shalom now, we need zechusim. yes, it was a thoughtless, silly comment, but im sure s/he regrtets it. dont make it worse with more negative responses. lets all daven that the situation should resolve soon.

  10. I rarely comment. All the bored people who commented just for the sake of commenting, go to shul take a tehilim and daven for those people that is what hashem wants from us in tough times like these.
