Nov. 26: Terrorists attack Mumbai

More than 170 people were killed and about 300 were wounded in a series of attacks on several of Mumbai’s landmarks and commercial hubs that were popular with foreign tourists, including two five-star hotels, a hospital, a train station, and a cinema.

Indian officials said ten gunmen carried out the attacks; it took Indian forces three days to end the siege.

Deccan Mujahedeen, a previously unknown group, claimed responsibility for the attacks. Pakistan officials denied any involvement in the attacks, but some Indian officials hinted that they suspect Pakistani complicity.
