Indian commandos freed hostages from Mumbai's Taj Mahal hotel today
but faced continued resistance in other parts of the city from Islamist
militants still holding between 50 and 200 of hostages and demanding
the release of extremists held in Indian jails.

The commandos
stormed two buildings in the late afternoon, seizing the lobby of the
Oberoi hotel and taking positions around a tower block where a number
of militants were believed to be holed up. Indian television reported
that some hostages were freed from the Oberoi.
