Australia’s chairman KRudd: “They are cowards…absolute cowards and murderers…” not so. They kill and are killed in the way of Allah (Koran 9:111) For Muhammedans, they are heroes…
Update: 3 terrorists killed, 9 captured… 1 Australian confirmed dead…
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 â€” 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 â€” killing at 101 and sending more than 900 to hospital, according to latest reports.
As fear grips Mumbai after a number of terror attacks across the city, two New Zealanders have been among the panic, barricading themselves in their hotel room for hours.
The gunmen are targeting spots popular with westerners and businessmen, and are said to be looking for people with British and US passports.
Gunmen are also reported to be holding Westerners hostage at the Taj Mahal Hotel, as well asÂ Cafe Leopold, perhaps the most famous restaurant and hang-out for tourists in the city.
Police say suspected terrorists remain inside several hotels.
A group calling itself the Deccan Mujahedeen has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Alan Colmes, co-host of Hannity and Colmes, the popular one hour program on Fox News at 9 PM,Â is quitting. Colmes, who could always be counted on to read whatever Democrat talking points were handed to him and who mastered in the art of “both sides do it so our guy shouldn’t be punished (but yours should), will be leaving the show in the new year.
This comes as good news to many of the shows viewers who have worn out the mute button on their television remotes from use every time Colmes began to speak.
Rumor has it that the show will be hosted by Sean Hannity without a co-host which will be a vast improvement.
