Terrorism analyst Reva Bhalla’s assessment of the Mumbai Attacks.
Nov. 28 – The bodies of five hostages have been found at the besieged Jewish centre in Mumbai after Indian security forces stormed the building.
Just before before dusk, commandos blew up an outer wall of the centre as they made their final assault on the building where gunmen were holding several Israeli hostages. At least 13 foreigners are among more than 120 people killed in a series of coordinated attacks on India’s financial capital.
CNN Reporter Threatened:
In the second day of the siege in Mumbai, some members of the media are finding themselves in the middle of local anger. CNN’s Sara Sidner is the network’s New Delhi correspondent. Sidner was reporting about the situation at the Taj Hotel when several locals began interrupting her live shot. Sidner would later report, “As we were standing outside a large group of people came around, many of them young, with the smell of alcohol on their breath, frankly. They were standing very, very close and suddenly chaos erupted.”
