RAIPUR, India  - Maoist rebels killed 15 police officers in the jungles of India's central state of Chhattisgarh in two separate bomb blasts, police said on Friday, as the insurgents continued a fresh round of violent attacks on security forces.

A bomb attack on two security vehicle killed 10 police and injured three early on Friday morning, a senior police officer said, hours after insurgents shot dead five state policemen in a raid on an armed forces camp.

Both the attacks were carried out in forested areas of the mineral rich region where the Maoists are mainly active, and where widespread violence has worried investors and disrupted mining and rail transport.

"It was a massive blast," Ram Niwas, additional director general of police (Maoist operation), told Reuters.
