Assam violence: 70 People Were Killed.

    Militants last evening killed 62 people in an hour in a series of coordinated attacks in four places. The militants are a faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland.
They targeted Adivasis or tribal settlers who work largely on tea plantations. In retaliation, they attacked a Bodo village this morning with spears and rods, killing three people.
Adivasis, who migrated to Assam more than 100 years ago, have been targeted by Bodo rebels in the past along with Muslim settlers in the state. The Bodos are an indigenous tribe in Assam, making up 10 per cent of the state's 33 million people.
Adivasis oppose the Bodo claim for an independent homeland, arguing that in many areas of the state, their ethnic group is in the majority.
