The Indian city of Mumbai was torn apart by a string of terror attacks tonight leaving at least 80 people dead and 250 wounded.
Gunmen wielding assault rifles and hurling grenades targeted two luxury five star hotels, the city's railway station and a hospital.
Witnesses claimed the terrorists were demanding 'anyone with a British or American passport' and gunmen were tonight reported to be holding Western hostages at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
'These are terrorist strikes in at least seven places. unknown terrorists have gone with automatic weapons and opened fire indiscriminately,' a state police chief told local television.
