'Free our Muhajideen' Demand Bombay Terrorists
The gunmen holding dozens of hostages in two of Bombay's luxury hotels are demanding the release of 'Muhajideens' held in Indian jails before they free their prisoners.

Speaking from inside the Oberoi hotel where at least half a dozen foreigners are being held hostage the man, identifed as Sahadullah, told India TV he belonged to an Indian Islamist group seeking an end to the persecution of Indian Muslims and added: "We want all Mujahideens held in India released and only after that we will release the people."

The demands came as the death toll in the terror attacks rose to 101, with six foreigners among the dead, according to police. Another 287 people have been injured.

As dawn broke over the country's financial capital after the night of carnage, gunfire could still be heard in the country's financial capital.

Police with loudspeakers declared a curfew around the Taj Mahal hotel, where at least two gunmen are still holding a number of hostages, many of them British and American.
