Suspected tribal separatists in northeastern India attacked the convoy of the visiting governor of Goa state with bombs but he escaped unhurt when his convoy sped away, an official said. S.C. Jamir, governor of the tiny western Indian state of Goa, was on a visit to his home state of Nagaland when he came under attack Saturday by suspected Naga insurgents while traveling between the towns of Mokokchung and Dimapur, said R. Lotha, a senior government official. "The governor's heavily guarded convoy was negotiating a stretch of the road that was under construction when five explosions took place in a drain alongside. The governor was unhurt but two policemen received minor injuries," he said. The area is 300 kilometers (185 miles) north of state capital, Kohima.
