Reports are coming in that shots have been heard coming from the headquarters of Chabad Lubavitch. Gunmen seized control of the headquarters of the Mumbai office for the ultra-orthodox Jewish outreach group overnight.

The Israeli consulate had been in contact with the rabbi of that lived within the headquarters but the line was cut mid conversation.

Mumbai is still under siege of the teams of terrorist that have killed at least 101 people since 9:00 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Westerners have been taken hostage by a group that is suspected to be Muslim militants.

The name of the hospital that the gunmen attacked is Cama. It is a women’s and children’s medical center. There was a standoff but it appears to have been resolved.

There are still hostages being held at the Oberoi Hotel. One of the terrorists has been in contact with a television station. CNN reports that he demanded the release of all “mujahedins.” He said, “Only after that will we release the people,” the militant told the TV station, according to the Times of India.”
