INDIA-FRANCE-ATTACKS

Mumbai’s main railway station, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, is lit up in the colours of the French national flag on November 15, 2015 to express solidarity with victims of the deadly attacks in Paris. For residents of the bustling Indian port of Mumbai, the attacks in Paris on November 13 that left more than 129 people dead, carry sombre echoes of a bloody series of killings in their own city in 2008. A total of 166 people were killed in November seven years ago when Islamist gunmen stormed luxury hotels, the main railway station, a Jewish centre and other sites in the booming metropolis, the financial heart of India. A 20-minute killing spree at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus left some 80 people dead. AFP PHOTO (Photo credit should read STR/AFP/Getty Images)
