It has been more than 24 hours since yesterday's attacks in the Indian financial center of Mumbai, and Indian commandos are still fighting for control of the city. The BBC's Chris Moyles reports that some of the attackers remain uncaptured.

In one of these leading hotels and possibly in the other, there're still people being held and there're still gunmen at large. All day, we've had Indian commandos going through these hotels literally1 room for room. There've been explosions; there's been the sound of gunfire. Both hotels at one stage or other have had large fires breaking out, so it's been quite dramatic and quite alarming I think for the people who live here. At the end of this day, the second day, they really wanted to get this whole thing finished, but it isn't finished yet. And they believe there are between 10 and 12 gunmen possibly still at large. The BBC's Chris Moyles reporting.

The State Department says it knows of no American citizens who died in the terrorist attacks in India, but at least three were injured. The U. S. is urging Americans not to travel to Mumbai for the next few days, and has issued a travel alert for all of India through the end of the year.

The ministers did condemn6 the Israeli land and sea blockade of the Gaza Strip, where humanitarian9 groups have been warning of a crisis due to shortages of food, power and fuel. In Damascus, Hamas spokesman criticized the foreign ministers' suggestion that Abbas remain in office until both presidential and parliamentary elections can be staged next year. Fatah says parliamentary balloting10 may take place in April. But Hamas says Abbas' term should end in January. Peter Kenyon, NPR News, Cairo.
