Today in Mumbai, Indian commandos continued to battle militants in three locations, eventually recapturing the Oberoi Trident Hotel and a Jewish Center.

The death toll is more than 120, including an American rabbi and his wife at the Jewish center and two Americans from a Virginia spiritual group. Former hostages and others who had brushes with death tell their stories.
