• 4 Indian Maoist rebels killed in gunfight


    NEW DELHI: Indian security forces killed four Maoist rebels, including a woman, in an overnight gun battle in India’s eastern Jharkhand state, a senior police officer said Friday. Two paramilitary personnel were also injured in the gunfight. India’s long-running Maoist insurgency began in the 1960s, inspired by Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, and has cost thousands of lives. The rebels operate in at least 20 Indian states but are most active in the forested, resource-rich areas of Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand and Maharashtra.
