There's been a third explosion inside the Nariman House in Colaba, breaking the eerie silence for the third time in the last three hours.The building is still in darkness as the Army closes in. Snipers have taken position at Nariman House. About 100 commandos are closing in. Helicopters are circling above the building.It's over 34 hours since Mumbai was taken over by terror. And there's still no end to the nightmare.Operations are still on at Nariman House, the Taj Hotel and Oberoi Trident to flush out the remaining terrorists. There is report of one injured militant inside the Taj hotel.Two to three terrorists are still in Nariman House but there are no more hostages inside.At the Oberoi Trident, there are believed to be one or two terrorists inside but it's not clear if there are any hostages or how many people may still trapped in the hotel.According to NSG Director General: "One injured terrorist is still inside Taj hotel. The stage seems to be set for a final operation there and the media has been asked to refrain from doing any live broadcasts from outside the hotel."At least 125 have been killed in the encounter, including 14 policemen and six foreigners; 327 have been injured.
