Sources told that the Bush administration is closely monitoring the terrorist attacks in Mumbai and its aftermath.

Officials are keeping President George W Bush [Images], who is at the presidential retreat at Camp David, for the Thanksgiving holidays apprised about the situation in Mumbai.

On the president's directive, officials have also kept President-elect Barack Obama's [Images] national security team posted with all the latest information to make sure "they are in the loop."

Meanwhile, the State Department has provided Americans who believe that a relative or friend has been affected by the attacks in Mumbai a number to call: 1-888-407-4747.

The simultaneous and coordinated terrorist attacks in Mumbai were the lead stories in all US television networks--CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC, which were continuing with the news with inputs from their correspondents in Mumbai and inputs from eyewitnesses.
