Last I am hearing, as of late Saturday afternoon, is 212… 26 non-Indian nationals.
Tho this headline is appearing over an older report in the Telegraph:
Mumbai attacks: 300 feared dead as full horror of the terrorist attacks emerges
The death toll in the Mumbai terror attack is expected to soar to nearly 300, Indian officials said, as details emerged of the highly-organised terror plot
They need to work this out… because various tellings of the “story” (various boats, some who posed as Malaysian students and rented a house, some who checked into the Taj early and stashed weapons and materiel, three in a cab that blew up before reaching the airport, a small team dressed as Indian police who commandered a van while the Taj was under one part of the assault, etc.) just do not support “10 terrorists”, especially with 10 targetted sites…
It is believed that just 10 highly-trained terrorists took part in the attack. Nine were killed and one suspect is under arrest.
Okaaay…? The thing is dripping with freshly shed blood…but it sure seems we are inside a cartoon.
