• Newspaper library Aguirre, after the hell of Bombay: "I went out barefoot stepping on pools of blood"

This Saturday

an exhibition of photographs on the

2008 Bombay attacks will be seen in


for the second consecutive year. Despite the remoteness of the place of the attacks, many people from Madrid will remember that the then president of the Community,

Esperanza Aguirre,

was in


traveling with a delegation of businessmen just when the massacre occurred.

"I went out barefoot, stepping on pools of blood," recalled Aguirre, who narrowly escaped the massacre that left

164 dead and more than 300 injured,

among other places in the city, in the hotel where the Madrid delegation was staying.

The Indian community in Madrid will pay tribute this Saturday to the victims, since this week marks the 14th anniversary of the tragedy, which lasted three days (from November 26 to 29) because there were different attacks.

To remember the barbarism of radical Islamism, the photo exhibition that will serve to illustrate the tribute includes

Hafiz Saeed,

the Pakistani leader of the terrorist group


author of the attacks.

The organizers of the event explain that the victims of

11-M in Madrid


11-S in the United States will also be honored.

In addition, another of the objects of the exhibition is "to show solidarity with the Afghan people, whose country has also suffered from terrorism," they explain.

Just like last year Aguirre herself inaugurated the exhibition, it is expected that this Saturday it will be the businessman

Arturo Fernández,

at that time president of the Madrid employers' association, who will inaugurate the exhibition.
