21 dead: NDFB rampage

Reports are today coming in of a series of shootings, allegedly by members of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB), in northern Assam.  The death toll stands at 21.  The attacks appear to target Biharis and coincide with US President Obama's visit to India.

UPDATE: the death toll has since been updated to 24.

The South Asia Intelligence Review ran an assessment of the episode last week.
