On air at 1100GMT: Reaction to the Mumbai attacks
Indian cities are on a state of high alert after 18 people were killed and dozens injured when three bombs exploded across Mumbai during the evening rush hour.
India's Home Minister P Chidambaram has said he believed the blasts were "a co-ordinated attack by terrorists", as the explosions occurred within minutes of one another.
But he said it was too early to speculate on who might have been behind the attack.
It's the worst attack to hit Mumbai since the terrorist attacks of November 2008, when gunmen killed 165 people in a three-day raid.
Pakistani-based militants were blamed for the 2008 attacks - and the government in Islamabad was quick to condemn the latest attacks.
After the attack in 2008, pledges were made by the indian government to set up a special terrorism unit and an extensive CCTV network across the city .
But ikaveri tweets
"I wonder what resilient means, seems close to denial. 10,000+ CCTV cameras in London, 100+ in Mumbai."
Why can't the Indian government protect it's commercial hub? Is it doing enough?
Some commentators say it is too simplistic to say
..."attacking its much touted financial and entertainment capital, you deal a body blow to India and get global media attention. That is only a small part of the story."
This blogger says she's angry and saddened at the attacks
"India cannot afford to be complacent. Terrorism is very, very real and it is not going away so this head-in-the-sand attitude isn't working. Just because terrorist attacks were foiled twice after the 2008 attacks, doesn't mean they're going to stop trying. Bombay is the heart and soul of India. It's India's City of Dreams. Don't the city and its people deserve better than this?"
