Suspected Maoist rebels raided a village in eastern India early Thursday and killed at least 10 people in an apparent act of revenge after several guerrillas were captured and turned over to police.

Nearly 50 attackers set dozens of mud huts with thatched roofs ablaze, burning to death a family of four in Kasari, a village nearly 125 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of Patna, capital of Bihar state, said U.S. Dutt, an inspector-general of state police.

Six others were killed when suspected rebels opened fire on villagers and dynamited some homes, Dutt told The Associated Press.

The attack appeared to be motivated by revenge after villagers caught eight suspected rebels earlier this month and handed them over to police, he said.
