At 9.20pm on 26 November 2008 gunmen burst into Mumbai's luxury Trident Oberoi hotel, firing indiscriminately. Jewish study centre Chabad House, popular with American and Israeli Jews, is next, followed by tourist hangout Café Leopold, the city's most luxurious hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace, and the CST, one of the world's busiest rail stations. These unprecedented commando-style attacks, which leave 166 dead, have clearly targeted both the Indian public and Western visitors. Seconds from Disaster reveals the failings that allowed 10 terrorists free reign of India's largest city - killing at will - in front of the world's cameras for nearly 3 horrifying days.
