Bombay Attacks

Last night while I was in a discussion with my boss reports came in over the phone from shooting and grenade attacks across the city. Most employees had already gone home for the day. The rest were advised to stay in the office until it became clear what was happening out there. The attacks seem to have been restricted to the Colaba area where most of the tourists and foreign businesspeople reside. Taj hotel, Cafe Leopold, VT station, ... all places I've been to many times. Fortunately nothing happened in the more suburban Malad area where I live and work.

This morning the situation is still unclear. We're not sure what's going on at the Taj hotel. A hostage situation is ongoing. Roads and trains are already opening up again.

I hope the Indian police and military goes after this evil scum with everything they've got. Take no prisoners.
