INDIA’S TAJ REOPENS AFTER TERROR?ATTACK

the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower hotel (above) reopened in Mumbai yesterday, 18 months after it was stormed by Islamist militants. The 107-year old heritage wing of the luxury hotel is set to receive guests for the first time since it was badly damaged by fire, smoke and explosions in the deadly 60-hour siege. A total of 1.75bn rupees (£23.9m) has been spent repairing, restoring and upgrading the wing.
