No comparison between Manawan and 26/11 Mumbai attack: StratforApril 5th, 2009 - 3:06 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Apr.5 (ANI): The US based private research agency, Stratfor, has downed comparison between the Manawan police training academy terror strike and the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks .
Stratfor’s analysis said that the two incidents should not be compared as the Mumbai attacks were significantly different from the one in Manawan
The buildings of the two luxury hotels taken under siege by the terrorist in Mumbai were far more complex in design and occupied a larger area than the training academy’s building in Manawan, the report said.
The Mumbai incident was intricate because it involved foreign citizens taken hostage at three different locations situated far away from each other.
“Pakistani authorities did not have to worry about international sensibilities or killing a foreign citizen with friendly fire,” The Daily Times quoted Stratfor’s analysis, as saying.
Furthermore, it said that unlike Mumbai, the police training academy is situated in an isolated place which made the work of the security forces much easier. (ANI)
