Mumbai Attackers Were "Foreign Looking and Fair Skinned"?
Two separate witnesses caught up in the attack on Mumbai claimed that the "terrorists did not appear to be of Asian origin.
Mr Pappu Mishra, the owner of a station cafe in Mumbai stated to the BBC "They were foreign looking and fair skinned"
In a seperate report to the BBC 'Gaffar Abdul Amir, an Iraqi tourist from Baghdad, says he saw at least two men who started the firing outside the Leopold Cafe.
He was returning to his hotel from the seaside with a friend when he saw two men carrying bags and brandishing AK-47s walking in front of them, shooting.
"They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed," says Mr Amir
As the two girls fell near the cafe, he saw the two men quickening their steps towards the Taj Mahal hotel further up the road.
A few minutes later, gunfire was heard from the hotel, and much later, Mr Amir heard that gunmen had taken guests hostage.'
These reports obviously raise concerns as to the origin and motives of the attackers
