Americans Killed in Mumbai Attacks Were From Religious Groups

MUMBAI, India (AP) - The Americans killed in last week's
terrorist attack in India were from two separate religious groups.

Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his Israeli wife, Rivkah, were killed in an attack on the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Chabad-Lubavitch center in Mumbai. Also killed at the center were Bentzion Chroman, an Israeli with dual U.S. citizenship, and Rabbi Leibish Teitelbaum of Brooklyn.

Alan Scherr and his 13-year-old daughter Naomi were killed by terrorists in a cafe. They lived at the Synchronicity Foundation's
sanctuary near Charlottesville, Virginia, and were among 25 foundation participants in a spiritual program in Mumbai.
