Police declare Mumbai siege over


news.bbc.co.uk

The siege at Mumbai's Taj Mahal hotel is over, officials say, three days after deadly attacks struck the city.

Police commissioner Hassan Gafoor said the hotel was now under their control. "All combat operations are over. All the terrorists have been killed."

Commandos began a new assault early on Saturday aimed at ending fighting that has claimed at least 195 lives

Wow im glad that this is finally over and ive just been watching the news stories about it on sky news and they are also describing it as india's 9/11 which is fairly worrying since all world leaders have warned before hand of another attack like 9/11

also they are saying that around 195 people so far have been killed and in one room alone they found up to 30 bodies and also alot of people have been saying that they are British i think its in all of the papers aswell but according to sky news that isnt true atall

So far, only 1 British citizen has been confirmed as dead and he was a Cypriot immigrant. I am sure though as they tally up the dead from the Taj Hotel that the number will rise.

It's best to wait for the information to be compiled before drawing conclusions, especially as to the source of the attack. I've seen some pretty wild and baseless claims being made that the attackers were caucasians.

Now, think about it, how inept an intelligence agency you would be if you had planned these attacks as a false flag to pin on Islamists, but then you send in a bunch of white guys without any kind of disguise to carry out the mission (a suicide mission as well, which western people are not that keen on). Personally, I haven't seen any claims these were white guys doing it, only hear-say on ATS about "eye-witnesses", without any shred of evidence to back it up.

Ha this proves how republicans protected america from terrorists and how they ahd to give up on using america and go after other countries. The republicans care about patriotism and not surrendering the ideals of freedom to a bunch of foreigners. Not one terrorist attack has happened to america as george bush said since we started declaring victory in the war on terror and this is proof of not only our victory but the republican ideals of freedom and democracy. What more justification could people need to realize this last election was rigged to destroy our country.

What a dumb post.

America has hardly had anywhere near the level of attacks as India or any other "hotspot" and one attack in the past decade hardly is anything to measure against. especially when it looks like that was an inside job anyway!

India has been suffering at the hands of extremists since before Americans cared about terrorism, so to use this latest attack as some sort of political pints grab about how "great" America is quite disgusting.

I often wonder whether some here think the A in ATS actually stands for 'America'. The need to make practically everything here Ameri-centric is staggering.
