‘Mumbai: Terror, Carnage and Shame’ on White House’s website

A day after the first attacks on Mumbai, terrorists armed with automatic weapons and grenades methodically whisked away revellers at clubs, bars and restaurants. They entered the crowded luxury hotels and attacked police and security forces. Among the first victims were several British citizens. The terrorists were armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades and had appeared to be well-prepared. In hindsight, Mumbai authorities say there were indications the attackers were expecting an invasion. “We were sowing the seeds in anticipation that a ‘commando raid’ might be brought to the city.” The end came soon enough: 250 were killed, 450 injured and a dozen attackers captured alive, many of them wounded.
