It is becoming pretty clear that the latest terrorist attack on Mumbai is primarily aimed at posh hotels with a view to hold western guests hostage, thus commanding the attention of the Western world. CNN-IBN reported that there were reports of terrorists specifically rounding up American and other western tourists to hold them hostage. That could throw a spanner in the works of the police/commandos planning commando action against the terrorists holed up in those hotels.
