Mumbai Siege ends finally after Three Days of Struggle

mumbai-siege-nov-29-2008MUMBAI, India –  Two terrorists were killed in the final stages of a battle with Indian commandos, following attacks throughout Mumbai.

The official death toll rose significantly to 195, from 155. Nearly 300 people have been injured in the assault on India’s economic capital.

The hotel siege was brought to a close today as security and political sources in the UK tried to play down suggestions that up to seven of the terrorists had strong British links, and that some of them were British-born men of Pakistani origin.

Sources in India are reported to have indicated that some of the men came from the north of England, including from Leeds, Hartlepool and Bradford.

However, a spokesman for the Foreign Office in London said: “We have spoken to Indian authorities at a high level and they have said that there is no evidence that any of the terrorists either captured or dead are British.”
