The Israeli victims in the Mumbai assault were tortured before they were executed--tortured so badly that a physician who received the dead victims at the hospital cannot bear to recall the state of the bodies. (Photo of Chabad House floor.)
Update. December 26, 2008. Mumbai police reports state that the Rabbi and his pregnant wife were sexually assaulted, then their genitalia mutilated, then they were strangled and shot. I leave to your knowing imagination the grusome and horrific details of this torture. Warning: the accompanying photograph, though pixelated, remains bloody and disturbing.
