The economic climate in many countries right now means folk are having to make hard choices – such as whether to spend their money on feeding their family or heating their homes, etc

The situation is still confused and reports of hostages are across the web. Coming at a tense time when elections are being held in, the much fought over state of, Kashmir, Indian Police have already accused Pakistan’s Intelligence agency of planning the attacks.
