Britain is sending a police emergency team to India to help probe the coordinated terrorist attack that killed over 100 people in Mumbai, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Thursday.

"We are sending police emergency teams that are well versed in dealing with terrorism," Brown said.

He said that Britain would do "whatever is necessary" to protect Britons visiting India.

"We are determined to maintain contact with those people up in the hotels. We will be able to keep in touch during the day."

Meanwhile, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said, "We are concerned at the apparent singling out of UK and US citizens and the Metropolitan Police stands ready to assist the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in whatever capacity we are required to do so."
