Suspected Maoist rebels detonated a series of roadside land mines in central India on Monday, killing nine police officers and wounding another three, a news report said. The officers were searching for the rebels when the attack occurred in the Kudur area of Chattisgarh state, nearly 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) southeast of New Delhi, the Press Trust of India news agency said, quoting unnamed police officers. Nine of them were killed on the spot and another three were wounded in the blasts, PTI said. The rebel assault was the latest in a series of attacks in the region, where widespread poverty has fueled a lengthy insurgency.
