MUMBAI, India – Police says 24 more bodies have been found in the series of attacks that have ripped through Mumbai over the past two days. The new figure brings the death toll in India's commercial and entertainment capital to at least 143.

Mumbai Police Chief Hasan Ghafoor also says gunbattles are continuing in the Taj hotel with one gunman. Two or three other attackers are in Nariman House, the headquarters of the ultra-orthodox Jewish outreach group Chabad Lubavitch.

The two buildings were among 10 that were attacked by suspected Islamic militants Wednesday night. Hundreds of people have been injured.
