Terrorists Take Hostage in top Mumbai Hotels
More update..news coming in is that there may be more terrorists at the Taj Mahal Hotel than it was first thought to be and one eyewitness Rakesh Patel from London but living in Hongo Kong escaped from the clutches of the terrorists and told NDTV that the terrorists were looking for those with British and US passports and that they came out from the restaurant of the hotel.
There were grenade attacks at the Taj Mahal old building as a clash took place between security forces and the hold-up terrorists.
Its also being reported that the JW Marriot has also been attacked.
From the spread of the attack and the intensity it is clear that a police force is not able to contain this and most likey the army will be called in.
A commando team has already left New Delhi for Mumbai ..while Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh campaigns in Kerala.
60 people have been killed and 250 injured.
