Today's Mumbai terrorist attacks now target Westerners
In an earlier posting bemoaning the malaria exposure risk of a trip to India, there's now the added risk of dieing from sudden lead poisoning, or close proximity to C4, in the hands of religious fundamentalist extremists. New attacks today! This is just great. There's a long history of terrorism caused violent death in India, but this new turn of events, targeting Western hotels and cafes, 2 months before my trip to the sub continent, does not comfort me. Luckily, I will not be anywhere near Northern India, as Bangalore in Karnataka State is much much further south.
