Suspected separatists shot dead eight people in India's northeast as security forces swept through a remote corner of the region after earlier militant attacks killed dozens, officials said. The eight killings in Sunday evening's two separate attacks in Assam state brought the death toll from three days of violence to 64, mostly migrant laborers from elsewhere in India. The violence - the region's worst in years - widely seen as an attempt by the United Liberation Front of Asom or ULFA to boost waning support among the impoverished area's indigenous peoples, and to force the government to resume peace talks.
