Adjust font size:

At least 13 foreigners were killed and 22 injured in the Mumbai terror attacks since it happened Wednesday night, officials said Saturday.

The earlier data released by India's Home Ministry on Friday said that eight foreign nationals were dead. The deceased included three German nationals, two Americans and one each from Japan, Canada and Australia.

These figures don't include the death of five Israelis in the Nariman House, whose killing was confirmed later by the police on Friday night, officials said.

The dead toll may rise to 200 in a series of militant attacks in Mumbai, they said.

The operation to flush out gunmen from the Taj Hotel was over after 62 hours of siege by the militants, three of whom were killed on Saturday morning in an assault by the commandos of the National Security Guards (NSG).

The NSG are still sanitizing the hotel to check if any remaining terrorist or explosive is still in the 400-room hotel, NSG Director General J K Dutt said.

"There was a lot of shooting. Grenades were lobbed and explosives were used by the terrorists," he said.

The forces had secured the other luxury hotel Oberoi and a Jewish center Nariman House on Friday.
