SPECIAL REPORT: Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2008 -- Shortly after news of the terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai broke today, “SAJA” launched a series of live webcasts on the horrific events. These special two-hour reports will continue every 12 hours in the coming days, with the next report beginning on 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 have left at least 78 people dead and as many as 300 wounded.

A group identifying itself the “Deccan Mujahedeen” has 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.

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.
