The death toll in the Mumbai terror attacks has risen to 195, including 15 foreign nationals, BMC, the local civic body, said.
"We are still compiling figures since more bodies are being brought in. So far the death toll is 195 while 295 persons have been injured," officials of Disaster Management Cell of the BMC told PTI.
Among the 295 injured, 23 were foreign nationals, they said.
The toll could rise further since more bodies were being brought to the hospitals from the Taj Hotel, which was flushed out only this morning.
Meanwhile, bodies of fifteen foreign nationals have been brought to the mortuary of the J J Hospital, sources said, adding eight of the bodies had been claimed.
A group of terrorists carried out attacks and held people hostage at the Taj and Oberoi hotels as well as at the Nariman House in south Mumbai.
