On 26 November, 2008 terrorists unleashed a wave of violence across Mumbai that lasted three days and played out on TV news channels around the world. The ten attackers belonged to Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and were armed with AK 47 rifles and hand grenades.
They attacked the city's main landmarks including luxury hotels, the main railway station, a popular restaurant among tourists, a hospital and Jewish centre. The attack left 166 people dead and more than a hundred injured.
Bollywood celebrities also tweeted about the victims of the terror attacks.

Hosted the Memorial last year for the 26/11 attacks, standing there alongside the dignitaries I felt gooseflesh as we proudly together sang the Indian National Anthem. This is a day Mumbai stood together (again) & this encapsulates the spirit of the city.

26/11. We will never forget. What has changed since, Mumbai? Are we any safer? We were promised Police Reforms, counter-terrorism training and modern equipment for a woefully understaffed and underpaid @MumbaiPolice force. Seen any?
