    It would be great if someone who stays near to these hospitals or is already in hospital to please publish whatever info they can.

    'Jewish rabbi, family being held hostage by Mumbai gunmen'
    27 Nov 2008, 1021 hrs IST, AFP

    Print Email Discuss Share Save Comment Text:



    MUMBAI: A Jewish rabbi and his family have been taken hostage by gunmen involved in a string of coordinated attacks in Mumbai, India's Jewish
    Federation told.

    "The name of the place is Chabad house in South Mumbai. I hear commandos are storming the apartment block, which is a four-storey building. A rabbi is in there with his family," Indian Jewish Federation chairman Jonathan Solomon said.

    "I don't know the number of gunmen in there. I don't know how many family members are in there," he added.

  60. Message from British Deputy High Commission:

    We are advising those in Mumbai to remain where they are until further notice. Those who are in the affected area outside their hotels are being advised to go to the British Council Library (02222790127) which has been set up as a muster point for British citizens in need of assistance. The area is closed off but we are taking in Brits. Local security is advising against entering the area as they are trying to control the area (partly for us) but those affected can enter.



    For those in other parts of the city wanting advice on whether to leave, we are advising them to seek local advice from their hotels as to whether they can safely reach the airport and catch flights out of Mumbai. For those who had planned to Mumbai, we are advising against all non-essential travel for the time being.



    Helpline number are:



    EMERGENCY NUMBERS: MUMBAI ATTACKS: If you are a British National in Mumbai who has been affected by the attacks and need assistance, please call +91 11 2419 2288. If you are in the UK and concerned about friends or family, please call the FCO Response Centre on +44 207 008 0000.

    "It seems that the terrorists commandeered a police vehicle which allowed them easy access to the area of the Chabad house," said a spokesman for the Lubavitch movement in New York, Rabbi Zalman Shmotkin.

    Around 10:30 a.m., a woman, a child and an Indian cook were seen being led out of the building by police, said one witness.

    The child was identified as Moshe Holtzberg, 2, the son of Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg, the main representative at Chabad house. The child was unharmed, but his clothes were soaked in blood.

    Sandra Samuel,44, the cook who pulled the boy out the building, said she saw Rabbi Holzberg, his wife Rivka and two other unidentified guests lying on the floor, apparently "unconscious.

    Terrorists Trapped Russians in Oberoi
    There are three Russians in Trident Oberoi Hotel, Mumbai, that was attacked by terrorists, RBC news agency reported citing Roman Vorobiev, the attaché of Russia’s Consulate General in Mumbai.
    According to Vorobiev, Aeroflot’s two cabin attendants and Russia’s resident Alexander Pakhomov are still in their rooms at Trident Oberoi. “We are trying to evacuate them to the Consulate General, but Indian authorities don’t let them leave the rooms for safety reasons,” Vorobiev specified.

    Officials of the Consulate General are near Taj Mahal and Trident. Their purpose is to find the location of other Russians that could have been in the hotels, when the terrorists attacked them.

    So far, no victims amid the Russians have been reported. Nine Russians that Rosoboronexport sent to Mumbai have been evacuated from Taj Mahal and are currently in the Mumbai office of Russia’s permanent representation in India. Two tourists of Russia that sought help at the Consulate General are there as well. “Eight members of Aeroflot crew have been evacuated from Trident. They are in the Consulate General,” Vorobiev said.

    According to local TV, some 10 to 12 militants control terror-struck Trident Oberoi; their hostages are roughly 100 hotel guests. A bomb is said to have exploded at the hotel.

    Update on the situation in Mumbai
    November 27, 2008
    We all are deeply saddened by the tragic events in Mumbai. We are very concerned about the safety of our guests and staff at the hotels in Mumbai. Our thoughts are with their families.

    Despite all efforts we are unable to make contact with the persons inside the hotel. Therefore at present, we do not have more information than what is being relayed by the media. We will update you as soon as we have confirmed information on further developments.

    We are monitoring the situation closely and we are extending all our cooperation to the police and government authorities. The safety of our guests and staff remains our primary concern.

    If you have any questions or need assistance in making contact with your family or friends that may be at the hotel, please call us at 011 2389 0555 or call Toll Free

    Our attempt will be to assist you as best as we can.

  117. The photos of the hostages released are on Flickr.com - (search nariman house) they are fuzzy but it is unfortunately clear that Rabbi and Rivkah are not amongst them. The most accurate count of hostages released seems to be seven - that's what the Indian news is reporting.

  119. For AHAM's other site RE ERNSTEENS:

    http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/archives/2008/11/28/2003429746

    US citizen Marilyn Ernsteen, who was with her husband Joseph, said they thought the gunfire was fireworks until hotel staff said they should lock themselves in their rooms and turn off the lights.

    “I didn’t know what was going on. I was terrified,” she said.

    Taking only her passport and purse, she and her husband, who are from Chicago, escaped from their fourth-floor room through smoky hallways and out a fire exit.

Their names have not been released yet and the operation is still going on although it is not known yet if there are more hostages still in Chabd House. However its confirmed by the same TV channel that a small baby boy ( believed to be the rabbi's child) was safely rescued earlier today along with a woman from Chabd House. Sincerely hoping that the woman rescued is Rivka Holtzberg

  166. Dear Friends I have not met yet,

    Yesterday was the worst Thanksgiving Day in my life- until 11:45pm when a total stranger- Rajeshree called me from India to tell me that she had located my sister Stephanie Botvin and Brother-in-Law Adam at a yoga retreat far from Mumbai, where they must have left shortly before the violence happened.

    Here is a big thank-you to Rajeshree and all of the people who helped a total stranger in my hour of need. I have learned four lessons from this whole mess: to value my children more (they were in Mumbai to set up a surrogacy baby), to always send an itinerary to family whenever I travel- (domestic or foreign). To take-up yoga, and to always trust in the kindness of strangers.

    To all of you who are still looking for loved ones, please do not loose faith. And to all of you wonderful helpers out there, keep up your good work. It is such a huge support to the families.

    Namaste,
    Andrea Botvin Duchovnays

May all of the injured and all of the families who are suffering now, be swept up in the love and compassion sent from all of us around the world.

  183. Am worried for the 13 year boy reported in CNN's Matthew Chance' report. It said the boy lost his parents, uncle, and cousins. There was no news on if there is someone to care for him. Hope people like him are not neglected.

  184. Sangeetha, you'll need to get in touch with the Omani Embassy in Mumbai on 009122 284 4938 or 0091284 4877 as consular staff handled the injured nationals who are now back home in Oman.

  185. I think NDTV list is not current.

    India Today list of deceased unfortunately looks to include Gaurav Jain, brother of Nivedita Jain who was looking for her brother and had found him injured in hospital.

    See India Today list

    You'll have to copy that to your browser because I can't make it a link. Sorry.

  186. Thank you all for your tireless efforts for my friends the Holtzbergs, of blessed memory, and for everyone you have been trying to track down.

    My heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of each of those who have been brutally murdered in this senseless, barbaric attack.

    And may all those wounded in this horrible ordeal be blessed with a complete and speedy recovery.

    Let's work together to bring more light into the world with acts of goodness and kindness.

  189. I just want to express my sympathy to all of you who have been affected by this awful tragedy. I would also like to say to all of you who have tried so selflessly and tirelessly to help those in need, (who were complete strangers), that I admire you greatly for your courage and kindness.

  191. Are there any european people who like to organize a demonstration for tolerance and understanding to accentuate a position against that chaotic action of the Lashkar-e-Taiba and organisations that use weapons to reach their aim?
