Contradictory reports on hostages' situation as operation continues

We do not have concrete information about the situation of the Israeli hostages in the Chabad House, Israel's General Consul to Mumbai Orna Sagiv told Israel Radio on Friday morning. While Indian special forces were fighting gunmen inside the building, news agencies had contradictory information about the status of the Israelis. Recent reports said the rescue operation is progressing slowly because there are live hostages in the building. However, previous reports on Indian networks said the hostages were dead.
