A bomb went off in a crowded market in the main city of India's restive northeast Saturday, killing seven people and wounding 18, an official said. Explosives were packed in a three-wheeled auto-rickshaw, said C.K. Bhuyan, a district administrator in the state of Assam. Several separatist groups have been fighting since 1979 for an independent homeland for Assam, where Gauhati is the capital.
