Terror Attack on Mumbai, India, yet again. Multiple blasts at five star hotels and other crucial places have been going on throughout the night. These crucial places are under seige.
A massive fire broke out on the upper portion of the heritage building of the luxury Hotel Taj at Colaba in Mumbai during an encounter between security forces and terrorists holed up inside.
The fire, which now seems to be spreading, was preceded by two explosions and followed by intermittent gunfire.
Thick plumes of smoke billowed out of the dome of the hotel located opposite the British colonial era monument of Churchgate of India.
Terrorists Hit Mumbai
Terrorists targeted luxury hotels, a popular tourist attraction, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station and Leopold's restaurant, in at least seven attacks in Mumbai, India', killing over 80 people and wounding about 260, agencies reported on Thursday. The gunmen were selectively targeting Britons and Americans, the police claimed. They were holding hostages at two luxury hotels, the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels. The Taj Mahal later burst in flames and several explosions were heard. The gunmen also attacked the south Mumbai police headquarters.
Several European lawmakers were among those still barricaded inside the Taj Mahal hotel. A British restaurant-goer at the Oberoi told Sky News television that the attackers were singling out Britons and Americans.
"They were talking about British and Americans specifically. There was an Italian guy, who, you know, they said: 'Where are you from?" and he said he's from Italy and they said 'fine' and they left him alone. And I thought: 'Fine, they're going to shoot me if they ask me anything - and thank God they didn't," he said.
"I was in the main lobby and there was all of a sudden a lot of firing outside," said Sajjad Karim, who was in the delegation of European lawmakers visiting Mumbai ahead of a forthcoming EU-India summit. "And all of a sudden another gunman appeared in front of us, carrying machine gun-type weapons. And he just started firing at us... I just turned and ran in the opposite direction," he told The Associated Press in a mobile phone call.
According to the media, the Deccan Mujahideen, has claimed responsibility for the attacks. PTI reported on Thursday the group sent emails to several media outlets about the attacks.

Gloria Lam, (also known as Lam Ah See, Lam Nga Si, Lam Nga Sze, Lin2 Ya3 Shin1) is a Hong Kong based actress, born on 31 January 1978.
The note added by the original author says, "This beautiful actress made quite a first impression in the trashy 1998 film "PR Girls", when she swishes into a hostess bar with oodles of attitude and daringly bares her naked chest. I was an instant fan! Her other films include "God.com", "White Storm" and "Our Last Day". She also owns a fashion boutique and a pet store in Hong Kong. This is one enterprising woman! During 2002 and 2003, Grace seemed to drop all of her inhibitions and along with Sophie Ngan became the "Cat III Queens of Hong Kong" with a number of low budget soft core films - "My Horny Boyfriend" being perhaps the most revealing - but there is also "Crime of the Beast II" for those who are fans of Grace's slim but perfect figure. What sets her apart from most "Cat. III actresses" is an innocent fresh air about her and physique that could poke your eyes out. Most importantly of course is that she is the heartthrob of "HK Entertainmant's Sanney". She has announced in 2003 that she is marrying and her chilly-saucy days are behind her - sad news for her fans."
