Terrorist attack in India

Here's a quick link to some listening opportunities on the BBC:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7753639.stm

Here, you can read reports on the terrorist attacks that have been taking place in Mumbai.

Scroll down to 0857 to listen to the British lawyer Mark Abell describing how he was rescued from his hotel room. He started exchanging messages on his Blackberry with someone from the British Council, and a few minutes later Indian security forces came to collect him. Mr Abell's account lasts about four-and-a-half minutes and is very clear.

Towards the top of the page, click on the picture of the BBC correspondent Nik Gowing for more information.

As always, please leave a comment when you have finished.
More soon.

I've heard the listening, but i've had some problems to understand because of voice from radio...but with two more listenings I've been able to catch it all.
Interesting topic, I've spent almost a hour in reading and watching reports.
