AUDIO: Saumitra Srivastava, a businessman and eyewitness to the terror attacks, speaks to Worldfocus from on the ground in Mumbai.

Multiple terrorist attacks have killed at least 119 people and wounded at least 300 in Mumbai, India.

Gunmen opened fire at luxury hotels, a crowded train station and a restaurant popular with tourists.

The series of  terrorist attacks began shortly after 10 p.m., sending crowds streaming into the streets as explosions destroyed gas stations and grenade attacks broke out in at least seven different locations.

There are reports of hostages being held at hotels, some of them westerners.

A group called the Deccan Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for the attacks, and several suspects have been arrested.
