Five years later, some of the victims and the families of those who died are still trying to get compensation or justice for what happened.

Others are remembering the day:

Listen to a first person account of the attack:

In 2008, a movie entitled, “Mumbai Meri Jaan,” which means “Mumbai my heart,” in reference to an old Hindi song, was released to tell the story of the 2006 attacks.

In November 2008, Mumbai was attacked by terrorists once again, in a three-day siege that resulted that left 164 people dead and 308 wounded.
