February 2, 2007 08:49

Suspected Hindu activists set ablaze two empty train coaches to protest their leader's arrest following Hindu-Muslim violence in a northern Indian city, officials said Friday. No casualties were reported. Members of the right-wing Hindu Yuva Vahini group set the fires late Thursday when the train stopped at a station in Mohammadabad, a small town in India's Uttar Pradesh state, police said. No one was hurt because most passengers had fled, said a railway spokesman, Manish Arora.
