Indian Rebels Kill 10 Soldiers in Bihar

Ten paramilitary soldiers have been killed in a clash between security forces and Maoist rebels in India’s eastern Bihar state, police say.
At least five other soldiers were injured in the battle in Aurangabad district late on Monday.
Maoist rebels have carved out strongholds in a number of states in the north, east and center of India, BBC reported.
They say they are fighting for communist rule and greater rights for tribal people and the rural poor.
Three rebels were also killed in Monday night’s gunfight in the Dumrinala area, nearly 170 km south of Patna, the capital of Bihar, police officer PK Sahu told AP.
The police said the rebels used improvised explosive devices and fired at the soldiers when the latter were conducting anti-rebel operations in the area.
India’s Maoist insurgency began in West Bengal state in the late 1960s and has been called the country’s “greatest internal security challenge.”
The Maoists control large areas of several states in a “red corridor” stretching from the northeast to central India.
