Naga rebels kill nine Indian troopers in ambush
NEW DELHI, India (Reuter) - At least nine Indian paramilitary troopers were
killed and six injured when Naga guerrillas attacked a patrol in the
northeastern state of Nagaland, a local news agency said Monday.
The government's Central Industrial Security Force troopers were attacked
while carrying state funds through rugged terrain on Dec. 2, the United News
of India quoted an official statement as saying.
Naga militants have battled New Delhi's rule in Nagaland for 10 years,
demanding a separate homeland at the Burmese border.
