There are also reports of a serious hostage situation inside the Oberoi Hotel. CNN-IBN has live video, BBC has footage, and there are updates coming from bloggers throughGlobal Voices.

As you’d expect, there’s a lot of information emerging as to who might be responsible, how many have been wounded or killed, and what’s happening right now, but in addition to the sources above certain places are emerging as nodes of information:
