Indian commandos freed hostages from Mumbai’s Taj Mahal hotel on Thursday but battled on with gun-toting Islamist militants who launched an audacious attack across India’s financial capital, killing more than 100 people.

The gunmen arrived by boats in Mumbai on Wednesday, before fanning out and attacking luxury hotels, a landmark cafe, hospitals and a railway station, firing indiscriminately.

Some 17 hours after the late-evening assault, soldiers and militants were still exchanging intermittent fire and more than 100 people were trapped inside rooms of the Taj Mahal hotel, a 105-year-old city landmark.
