India:Fears five more terrorists are on the loose after their toothbrushes are found in attack boat.

Another headline story today has reported that Mrs. Clinton is going to make India a priority of her new post.
Oh good.  That should make the Indians feel warm and cozy.  But hey come to think of it.  Maybe she and Obama can find answers and solve this awful problem.  You never know.  Lets be honest now gang.

We have not yet actually tried all holding hands and forming a circle and singing Kum-By -Ya, have we?  It’s been talked about.  But nobody has actually done it.  Oh Boy.  I think we’re gonna have some further problems.

Massacre in Mumbai: Fears five more terrorists are on the loose after their toothbrushes are found in attack boat

* Zardari: Militants may drag India and Pakistan into war
* Third Indian minister offers resignation
* Intelligence warning of attacks was ‘lost in system’
* Condoleezza Rice to fly to India on Wednesday
* Defiant Cafe Leopold reopens after horrific attacks

Five more terrorists may be on the loose in Mumbai and could be planning a second wave of attacks, it is feared.

Police sources were quoted today revealing the hijacked Indian fishing boat used by the gunmen to approach Mumbai had equipment for 15 men on board – suggesting that several gunmen could still be at large.

‘Fifteen jackets were found, 15 toothbrushes even,’ one police source was quoted as saying in The Times. ‘That more men were involved is possible.’

In an effort to ease tension between the two states, The White House said that U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would travel to India on Wednesday.

Pakistan is already struggling to contain Islamic militants within its borders. Earlier today eight people were killed in a suicide bomb attack in the country, with both Al Qaeda and Taliban militants stepping up their attacks against Pakistani security forces.

Pakistan’s position as Afghanistan’s neighbour has made it a key flashpoint, with Osama bin Laden fleeing there in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and militants training in camps there before fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Mumbai residents returned to schools and offices today for the first time since the attacks.

The fears came as Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari appealed to India not to punish his country for last week’s attacks, saying militants could precipitate a regional war.

Mr Zardari, whose wife, Benazir Bhutto, was assassinated by Islamist militants last year, warned that provocation by rogue ‘non-state actors’ posed the danger of a return to war between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

‘Even if the militants are linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba, who do you think we are fighting?’ asked Mr Zardari in an interview with the Financial Times today.

In total, 172 people, including a British millionaire, died in last week’s attacks. Almost 400 were injured.

Analysts say last week’s Mumbai assaults by Islamist militants bore the hallmarks of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based group blamed for attacks in India including a 2001 parliament blast that almost plunged the two countries into a fourth war.

‘We live in troubled times where non-state actors have taken us to war before, whether it is the case of those who perpetrated [the] 9/11 [attacks on the United States] or contributed to the escalation of the situation in Iraq,’ said Mr Zardari.

‘Now, events in Mumbai tell us that there are ongoing efforts to carry out copycat attacks by militants. We must all stand together to fight out this menace.’

Indian officials have said the 10 attackers who held Mumbai hostage came from Pakistan, a Muslim nation carved out of Hindu-majority India in 1947.

Yesterday India said it had proof linking its nuclear rival Pakistan to the massacre – and warned it would raise security to a ‘war level’.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
