One good source: the #mumbai hashtag search on Twitter.

Indian security forces (Police, NSG, RAF) are actually asking social media (individuals) to not report from the ground about operations in real time since they may compromise the situation (TV signal is currently blacked out as of 22h55)…

Amazing times when the people get the news out faster and easier than the big news media…. (not always the best thing, but hey that’s true democracy.. ouch)
