Interfaith Vigil Held to Mourn Mumbai Victims

NEW YORK (AP) - About 80 New Yorkers have mourned victims of the
Mumbai attacks at a candlelight vigil outside the Indian mission to
the United Nations.

Rabbi Ari Weiss says the interfaith gathering was meant to show
solidarity with the victims and "protest the horrible crimes that were committed."

At least 172 people died and 239 were wounded in a 60-hour attack on several sites, apparently carried out by 10 gunmen. Those killed included Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah.

The Holtzbergs were part of the Chabad-Lubavitch congregation in Brooklyn until they left to manage the Jewish group's center in Mumbai in 2003.
