SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singaporean woman was killed after being held hostage when militants attacked a top hotel in India's financial capital, Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday. The Foreign Ministry said the woman was identified by her husband as 28-year-old Lo Hoei Yen, who was in Mumbai's Trident Oberoi hotel when the militants struck.

Local media said she was a lawyer in India on business.

The attacks and a two-day standoff with commandos killed 124 people, though 143 guests were freed earlier in the day from the Trident Oberoi.
