MUMBAI, INDIA (WALB) - Clashes continued Friday between terrorists and Indian forces in Mumbai, India.

The death toll is more than 150 in a series of coordinated attacks that began Wednesday at least ten locations around the city.

Terrorists took hostages at two large hotels.

They've now been released, but at least one gunman was still inside the Taj Mahal Hotel.

Here in south Georgia, natives of India are glued to the television to stay up to date on the latest developments.

"Yes, we saw the news and it's real bad the terrorists attacked, and we've been watching the news for two days, for that many people  to die it's sad. It's our country so even though I'm here I still felt bad about the killing," said Radha Patel, Indian American.

Patel said no one she knows was injured.

At least five Americans are among the dead.
