    News reports are very confused at the moment but it appears to be a spate of coordinated attacks with guns and grenades aimed at tourists, the Taj and other hotels are reported to have been attacked and some reports are talking about US and British passport holders being targetted:(

    It's all very confused at the moment but theres some reports that westerners are being held as hostages at the Taj and Oberoi hotels.

    The Taj is enormously posh (Ive stayed at a cheaper place nearby) so it makes sense as a target.
