Mumbai's terror track record: nine major attacks in two decades

2008 shooting sprees

The November 2008 three-day assault on Mumbai included shooting sprees that left more than 150 people dead. Gunmen linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba rampaged throughout the city's luxury hotels and cafes, putting India-Pakistan relations in a "deep freeze" as claims arose that the shooters had ties to the Pakistani military. Pakistan later acknowledged that some of the attackers were from Pakistan and carried out some of their plotting there.

The Monitor's New Delhi reporter says that for Indians the incident's significance is comparable to 9/11.
