As many of you know, Mumbai a suffered a major terrorist attack. Likening it 9/11, Indian officials have tried their best to maintain some sort of discipline and order amidst the obvious chaos.

According to Bloomburg, terrorists attacked several major Mumbian sites, including the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, the Oberoi, and the Trident. These hotels are frequented by those economically similar to Bill Gates. Bloomburg went on to report that "the head of India's anti-terrorism unit and at least 10 other officers were killed" during the course of the attacks.

BBC has reported that the terrorists, who have killed over 100 people (at last count), are definitely based somewhere outside of India, and came into the city of Mumbai with the express intent of carrying out their violent plans.

For instant updates on what's going on, BBC has reporters updating this site with the latest information almost hourly.

May our prayers go out to all those involved.

This site (boston.com) has some of the most telling Mumbai pictures that I have seen. Be warned, though- some of the pictures are very graphic.
