    Default Terrorist attack in Mumbai: 80 feared dead

    Indian attacks: More than 80 reported dead as gunmen run amok in Mumbai | World news | guardian.co.uk

    In one of India's worst terror attacks, gunmen ran amok in the wealthiest part of Mumbai tonight, killing dozens of people, blowing up cars, petrol stations, hospitals and luxury hotels and taking a number of foreign nationals hostage.

    ...

    The motive for the attacks was not immediately clear, but Mumbai has frequently been targeted in terror attacks, including a series of blasts in July 2006 that killed 187 people.

    The city has been hit repeatedly by attacks since March 1993, when Muslim underworld figures tied to Pakistani militants allegedly carried out a series of bombings on Mumbai's stock exchange, trains, hotels and gas stations

    The Jihadi's have been stepping up attacks in India, over the last few months. This will sadly become more frequent in India.

    It will indeed. Partition was never going to be enough for these people. There will always be further demands until finally they return for the whole lot. India is unfinished business.

    I wonder who was behind this partition?

    If you are suggesting it was simply the machinations of the Brits you need to read up on your history.

    Maybe there were ears too but it was largely breasts.

    Tempting as it is(and it is very tempting) to blame it all on a post colonial crisis. Twin Towers is correct.

    Read your history!!!
