지난 달 사흘간 무장단체의 공격을 받았던 인도 뭄바이의 고급 호텔 두 곳이 21일 다시 문을 열었습니다.

타지마할 호텔과 오베로이 트리덴트 호텔은 보안이 강화된 채 개장했습니다. 트리덴트 호텔에는 사설 경호원이 입구 로비를 지키고 있으며, 투숙객들은 모든 짐을 금속 탐지기와 X선 탐지기를 통해 검사 받아야 합니다.

트리덴튼 호텔 재개관 행사에 참석한 방문객들은 테러에도 불구하고 뭄바이의 사업은 망하지 않았다는 것을 보여주기 위해 참석했다고 말했습니다.

두 호텔은 모두 지난 달 26일 최소 1백70명이 사망한 뭄바이 테러 때 심하게 훼손됐었습니다.

Two Mumbai luxury hotels targeted by militants during a three-day siege last month have reopened.

Security is stepped up as the modern Tower wing of the Taj Mahal Hotel and the Oberoi-Trident Hotel open their doors to guests. Private security guards are watching lobby entrances at the Trident, while guests must pass all luggage through metal detectors and X-ray scanners.

Staff, guests and dignitaries said multi-faith prayers in the lobby of the Trident hotel as part of a commemoration ceremony. The Taj Mahal Group said the tower wing of its hotel will host a similar service later today.

Visitors at the Trident hotel's re-opening said they came to show those behind the attacks that terrorism does not close down business in Mumbai.

Both buildings were heavily damaged during the November 26th terrorist attacks that killed at least 170 people in India's financial capital. The hotels were two of 10 sites stormed by gunmen during the siege.
