Israel Buries Victims of India Attack


Throngs of mourners on Tuesday packed the funerals of the six Jews killed in the 60-hour terror rampage in the Indian city of Mumbai, a grim occasion deepened by the conviction that the victims were targeted because of their religion.

The six died when gunmen struck the Chabad House, the Mumbai headquarters of the ultra-Orthodox Lubavitch movement, on Wednesday night. After a two-day standoff, three Israelis, a rabbi with joint American-Israeli citizenship an American Jew and a Mexican Jewish woman were dead. The woman had planned to immigrate to Israel this week.
