The attacks in Mumbai were carried out at ten locations across the city including the landmark Taj Mahal Palace hotel [hotel website]. In a statement [press release] to the nation a day after the attacks started, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [official website] said the country "will take the strongest possible measures to ensure that there is no repetition of such terrorist acts... [and will] take whatever measures are necessary to ensure the safety and security of our citizens." In the wake of the attacks, Singh pushed for tougher anti-terrorism measures [JURIST report]. The attack was the worst the city has seen since a group of bombings killed more than 250 people in 1993.
