US officials: Americans still at risk in Mumbai

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department says "Americans are still at risk on the ground" in the Mumbai terror attacks.

State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid provided no other details about the unfolding events threatening Americans in India. The State Department told reporters Friday that two Americans have been killed in the terrorist attacks and two were wounded.

Officials in India also put two Americans among the 22 foreigners killed. Gunmen attacked 10 sites across Mumbai, killing more than 150 people.

Duguid says the families of the Americans who died have been notified, but the State Department did not release their names.
