Mumbai Attacks

TOKYO: One Japanese national was among those killed in a series of attacks apparently targeting foreigners in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

"Our consulate general there is checking details but they have so far confirmed that one Japanese national died while another was injured," an anti-terror official at the ministry here said.

The wounded person was not in a life-threatening condition, the official said.

Heavily armed Islamist militants hit two luxury hotels in Mumbai late Wednesday.

Up to 100 people were killed and around 100 more wounded in the coordinated attacks by gunmen, Indian media reported Thursday.

A group calling itself the "Deccan Mujahedeen" claimed responsibility for the assaults on the landmark Taj Mahal and Trident hotels in the south of the city and a number of shooting and bombing incidents elsewhere.

Maharashtra state chief secretary Johnny Joseph said 78 people had been killed. Estimates of the number of injured ranged from 200 to 350.
