SPECIAL REPORT: Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2008 -- Shortly after news of the terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai broke yesterday, “SAJA” launched a series of live webcasts on the horrific events. These special 90-minute reports will continue every 12 hours in the coming days, with the next report beginning Thursday, Nov. 27 at 10 a.m. New York City time.

Journalists and experts in Mumbai and in the U.S. will join host Sree Sreenivasan for updates, struggling to make sense of the massacres that left 101 people dead and 287 wounded.

After seizing hostages, a group identifying itself the “Deccan Mujahedeen” claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks on the upscale Taj Mahal and Trident hotels, and for bombings and shootings elsewhere in the West Coast city - which targeted U.S. and British citizens.

Sreenivasan, a professor of journalism at New York’s Columbia University and co-founder of the South Asian Journalists Association, is encouraging listeners with updates from Mumbai to call the show at (347)324-5991 and share information with the South Asian community, as well as with journalists worldwide.

They can also email questions and suggestions to: saja@columbia.edu.
