A series of attacks rocked India's financial capital and have left more than 100 people dead.
Canadian photographer Daniel Gautreau is currently in Mumbai and sent his photos to CBC News.
Read on for his story.
My name is Daniel Gautreau and I am currently in Mumbai. I am writing from my hotel which is located a few blocks away from The Taj Hotel. Early this morning I was able to see two fires break out at the hotel. Throughout the night and still this morning you can often hear bursts of gun fire.
An elderly couple who were out for dinner last night were trapped in a restaurant just behind the hotel. They just arrived here this morning. The streets are eerily empty for a city with a population of 18 million.
