'World's unluckiest tourists' witness three separate terrorist attacks

A couple have been labelled the world's unluckiest tourists after being caught up in three separate terror attacks during their holidays.

Jason and Jenny Cairns-Lawrence, from Dudley, West Midlands, were in central Mumbai last month when the Indian city came under siege from Islamic militants.

They were also in New York during September 11 2001 when terrorists flew two passenger planes into the World Trade Centre, bringing down the twin towers and killing almost 3,000 people.

And four years later they were in London on July 7, when terrorists blew up three London Underground trains and a double decker bus, resulting in the deaths of 52 commuters.

Dental laboratory worker Mrs Cairns-Lawrence, 26, said: "It's a strange coincidence. The terror attacks just happened when we were in the cities."

The couple praised Mumbai for the city's speedy recovery, adding that it had been somewhat of an inspiration.

She added: "As I looked around, it was impossible to tell that such a ghastly thing had happened.

"In New York people carried the look of terror in their eyes for weeks after the carnage.

"In London, the police appeared more scared than the people."

The couple refused to cut short their holiday following the Mumbai attack, which saw 164 people killed in coordinated attacks on hotels, a restaurant, a Jewish centre and a train station.

Mr Cairns-Lawrence, a sales manager, 42, said: "I would say that Mumbai sprang back to its feet faster than New York or London.

"New York took almost a week to come back to normal. But Mumbai was back to its usual business from day three. "It was just amazing."


>>>>> MARKLAR: So, I missed this story when it first came out and if this is the first you have heard of it, then obviously you did as well. I have nothing to say that this isn't the result of mere coincidence but it would be very interesting to know for sure whether these folks have any links to the CIA, the Mossad, or MI-6.

It would probably take someone with contacts inside the intelligence community like maybe Ray McGovern to figure it out if they were.

Strange indeed Marklar! The three biggest terrorist attacks that are heard around the world and they just happen to be at all three? Hmmm, it would be interesting to probe into this more and see who these two really are if at all possible.
