GAUHATI, India (AP) - A senior police official says at least 10 people have been killed and four others wounded as militants armed with automatic weapons opened fire in India's remote northeast.

L.R. Bishnoi, the inspector general of Kokrajhar district in Assam state, said Friday that the killings took place in two separate attacks late Thursday.

He says rebels from a faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland were behind the attacks and that those killed belonged to the minority Muslim community. The group has three factions. He gave no reason for the attacks.

The rebel group has been fighting for a separate homeland for the region's ethnic Bodo people.
