Ahead of Thursday's first anniversary of the deadly terror attacks that paralyzed Mumbai for 60 terrifying hours, groups around the city held vigils, calling for police reform and painting murals to remember the 166 killed. On Nov. 26, ten Pakistan-based gunmen fanned out across the Indian financial capital, shooting up luxury hotels, the Chabad House, a major train station and other sites, as police and military struggled for nearly three days to regain control. Seven men were charged in Pakistan on Wednesday for their roles in the assault. Two non-governmental groups gathered 100 people to paint about a stretch of wall in south Mumbai, where the attacks were focused. "We want to make sure 26-11 is not just forgotten," said Shaina NC, one of the organizers.
