More failure: this guy was captured alive
Epic Fail: No virgins for you. “Mumbai gunmen ‘planned to kill 5,000,'” from Australia’s ABC, November 30 (thank to JE):
Indian officials say the gunmen who attacked Mumbai this week planned to kill up to 5,000 people.
At least 195 people died and hundreds more were injured when the gunmen launched their coordinated attacks at locations around the city on Wednesday evening (local time).
The Times of India is reporting that Indian police believe 10 terrorists carried out the attacks. Nine were killed and one, who was caught on camera during the attack at the city’s main railway station, was captured alive.
Maharashtra’s deputy chief state minister says initial investigations suggest the militants had hoped to kill up to 5,000 people. […]
The Hindustan Times wrote: “India is under attack. The very idea of India is under attack … Playing the headless chicken is no longer an option”.
Oh, I’m sure some people will manage to continue doing so anyway.
A US counter-terrorism official said Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant group fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, may have been responsible for the attacks.
