A relatively unknown group calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for attacks in Mumbai that killed over 100 people.
This would not be the first time Muslim extremists have targeted Mumbai. A group called the Indian Mujahideen took responsibility for a series of blasts earlier this year.
Jeff Stein, who follows national security matters for Congressional Quarterly and writes a column called “Spy Talk,” speaks with Martin Savidge about the relationship between these groups and earlier warnings about threats to Mumbai. They also discuss tense Pakistan-India relations and the implications of the attacks for U.S. security.
Two eyewitness accounts are below the video.
Here are two eyewitness accounts:
