From The Telegraph:

The death toll in the Mumbai terror attack is expected to soar to nearly 300, Indian officials said, as details emerged of the highly-organised terror plot.

Piles of bodies were found yesterday after commandos stormed the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the last of three buildings that terrorists had occupied in the city. Three terrorists were killed in the battle.

The end to four days of carnage came as tensions grew between India and Pakistan over the atrocity.

My Comment: Some Indian bloggers are putting the death toll between 400 - 500. Either way .... this death squad of ten men caused enornous damage, ruining multiple families, and putting India at the brink of war with Pakistan.
