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

What could be the final push to retake the Taj hotel began toward the end of the day. 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.
