The China Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

A group of rebels us­ing rocket-pro­pelled grenades and au­to­matic weapons am­bushed a mil­i­tary con­voy in In­dia’s in­sur­gency- wracked north­east on Thurs­day, killing at least 21 sol­diers and wound­ing 14 oth­ers in the lat­est ma­jor attack in the re­gion in re­cent months, po­lice said.

The am­bush oc­curred as the three-ve­hi­cle con­voy was on its way from a small town to Im­phal, the cap­i­tal of Ma­nipur state, a po­lice of­fi­cer said on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause he was not au­tho­rized to talk to re­porters.
