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

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.
