As Indian special forces continue their cat-and-mouse hunt for the gunmen behind the Mumbai massacres, the body count is rising.

More than 140 people are now known to have died as a result of the coordinated attack on India’s financial capital.

Commandos are trying to flush out the last remaining militants holed-up in the Taj Mahal Hotel.
Fresh gunfire and explosions have been heard from the luxury complex where several hostages are still believed to be held.

Earlier, after rescuing captives from the Oberoi hotel, security forces said they had regained control of that building.

Some 370 people are reported injured after the terror attacks.

India was more explicit in pointing the finger of blame at Pakistani-linked “elements” today.
London is checking reports that British Pakistanis may have been involved.

Most of those mourning loved ones are Indian. But at least 17 foreigners are among the dead, including two Americans, two French nationals and a Briton.
