What the hell is going on in Bombay? There are homicidal lunatics roaming the streets killing people and it looks like another bunch of Islamic maniacs have lost the plot.
At least eighty people have been murdered and this figure will probably rise by morning. The place is going mad.
I have very little information right now, so I’ll just give you these links and you can follow events as they develop.

Here’s Wikipedia as it gets updated.

Twitter gives the latest:
This could become an awful lot worse as the night goes on. The situation is not under control. The attackers, armed with guns and bombs, have taken hostages in the Taj Mahal and Oberoi Trident hotels and the police don’t yet seem to know exactly what they’re dealing with.
The number of dead has risen to 100 and injured to 300. Hostages have been freed from one of the hotels, the Taj, but not from the other.
They’re now reporting that people are still trapped in both hotels and that room-to-room fighting is going on between the attackers and Indian special forces. 125 reported killed.
Two days later
They’re still shooting it out at the Taj Hotel. Five or six gunmen are inside and shooting at the police. Meanwhile, five hostages have been murdered in the Jewish centre.
This is the third night of the assault and India is an advanced country with all sorts of resources, yet a dozen men seem capable of holding all those vast resources at bay.
