View Larger Map

At least 87 people are reported killed and at least 250 injured in a series of shootings and a terrorist siege across the Indian city of Mumbai. Seven different locations have been attacked.

SITES TARGETED:
CST (formerly VT) rail terminus
The landmark Taj Hotel at the Gateway
Luxury Oberoi Trident at Nariman Point
Domestic airport at Santa Cruz
The Cama and GT hospitals near CST
The Metro Adlabs multiplex
Mazgaon Dockyard

HIGH-RANKING POLICE OFFICIALS KILLED
Chief of the anti-terror squad Hemant Karkare was killed
Mumbai additional commissioner of police (east) Ashok Kamte gunned down outside the Metro
Encounter Specialist Vijay Salaskar killed.

TERRORIST STATUS
Two terrorists killed, eight arrested.
Terrorists are reported to be infested in the hotel and holding possibly 100 hostages.

At the crowded CST railway station terrorists armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades entered a passenger hall of CST and opened fire and threw grenades. Two five star hotels–Oberoi and Taj hae also been attacked.

The Oberio has been shown on FOXNEWS with several floors of the hotel ablaze — starting at the lobby. The Taj is ablaze on the top floor. Fire started in the Heritage wing. Terrorists moved through the kitchen and head toward a newer wing.

Reports that Westerners have been targeted in these attacks. People with British or U.S. passports were shot and killed on site or taken captive.

The Taj hotel is the site of many top deals in international business and commerce.

Three people were killed in a bomb explosion in a taxi in Mazegaon dockyard road.

 Gunmen then sprayed bullets at a popular restaurant, Cafe Leopold, and in the lobby of the Taj.

A boat packed with explosives was defused at the Gateway of India.

Mumbai, India, formerly Bombay, is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra and the financial capital of India. Mumbai is the home of Reserve Bank of India, the Bombay Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India and the corporate headquarters of many Indian companies and numerous multinational corporations.

The attack is described by some experts as a classic terrorist act — take out the police first and then have free reign to do what they want. The terrorist may have accessed the city via Gemini inflatable boats.
