Several people have been killed in a series of coordinated attacks targeting Mumbai sites popular with tourists and business people, according to police and CNN’s sister network in India.

Ongoing battles between police and gunmen were reported at two five-star hotels by CNN-IBN.

Gunmen armed with automatic weapons and grenades attacked targets including the hotels, a cafe, and a train station, police say.

Mumbai’s got a special place in my heart. Even without it, this is scary. Then there’s this:

One witness told local reporters gunmen had tried to find people with U.S. or British passports.

The world is scary right now.
