    Ops and Intel update, Nov, 26,08





    First-hand accounts of the deadly Mumbai attacks are pouring in on Twitter, Flickr, and other social media.

    Twitter has fresh news every few seconds, on MumbaiBombay,#Mumbai, and @BreakingNewz.

    "Hospital update. Shots still being fired. Also Metro cinema next door," tweets mumbaiattack. "Blood needed at JJ hospital," addsaeropolowoman, supplying the numbers for the blood bank.

    Google map of the attacks has already been set up. So has ashockingly-current Wikipedia page, which features a picture of one of the gun-toting attackers.

    The local bloggers at Metblogs Mumbai have new updates every couple of minutes. So do the folks at GroundReportDozens of videos have been uploaded to YouTube. But the most remarkable citizen journalism may be coming from "Vinu," who is posting a stream of harrowing post-attack pictures to Flickr.
