UPDATE: 8 foreigners known dead in Mumbai Massacre

MUMBAI, India (AP) - A top Indian official says eight foreigners are known to have been killed so far in the Mumbai attacks and 22 more have been injured.

Top security official M.L. Kumawat says the dead include three Germans, and one person each from Japan, Canada and Australia. The nationalities of 2 more are unknown.

The injured include five from Britain, three Germans, two Americans, two from Oman and one each from Norway, Spain, Canada, Finland, Philippines, Australia, Italy and China. Two more were unknown.

A chain of militant attacks across India's financial center that began Wednesday have left at least 143 people dead.


MUMBAI, India (AP) - The landmark Taj Hotel in Mumbai has erupted in flames after a terrorist group targeted the hotel full of Westerners.

A media report says a little-known group, the Deccan Mujahideen, has claimed responsibility for the Mumbai terrorist attacks.  The Press Trust of India news agency said Thursday the group sent emails to several media outlets.

Teams of heavily armed gunmen attacked a crowded train station in southern Mumbai and Leopold's restaurant, a well-known Mumbai landmark, along with the two hotels and a police station. Officials say at least 78 people were killed and another 200 wounded. In addition, the attackers were holding hostages Thursday morning.
