125 dead in 'India's 9/11'; siege at Taj over

India's armed services, working in tandem with police, elite commandoes and anti-terrorism squads, had been engaged in a bloody battle Thursday with terrorists who held hostages and who overnight transformed the bustling metropolis of Bombay into a city frozen by fear. Authorities said the death toll from the terrorist attacks, dubbed "India's 9/11" by the local media, stood at 125, including at least six foreigners, by Thursday evening.
