MUMBAI, India (AP) - Indian news reports say five hostages have been killed in the Mumbai headquarters of an ultra-orthodox Jewish group.

Two Americans were also confirmed dead in the Mumbai attacks that began Wednesday night. A spokeswoman with the Synchronicity Foundation in Virginia said Friday that Alan Scherr and his 13-year-old daughter were killed while they were in a cafe in Mumbai.

In Jerusalem, the Israeli rescue service said five hostages and two gunmen were killed at the center.

A chain of militant attacks across India's financial center that began Wednesday have left at least 143 people dead.
