It's now just after 7am in Mumbai, India. It's the start of a new day. A choatic day. India's largest city is in crisis mode after a series of terrorist attacks.
At least 10 sites were targeted, includng two luxury hotels, a cafe, a hospital for women and children, a movie theatre and train station.
At least 87 people have been killed and another 185 others are wounded.
There are also believed to be hostages in the two hotels. A witness told local television that he was in the one of the hotels around 10 p.m. local time when gunmen entered the lobby and began rounding up guests, asking for anyone with a U.S. or British passport and taking hostage about 15 of them.
Let me put this terror rampage in perspective. A U.S. businessman in India who witnessed an explosion at the airport had an interesting way to put today's attacks in context for American viewers because Mumbai is like the New York of India.
"Today's attacks are like terrorists took over the Waldorf and the Ritz and then went on a shooting spree in Times Square," he said.
So, who's responsible for the bloodshed? What was the motive? And, should Americans be alert overseas and here at home?
