Two killed in Guwahati market blast

At least two persons were killed and eight others were injured in a powerful bomb blast at a marketplace here on Monday.

Guwahati, May 14 : At least two persons were killed and eight others were injured in a powerful bomb blast at a marketplace here on Monday.

The bomb set off by the suspected United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) militants exploded on the roadside near a mosque in Guwahati.

"A bomb, which was kept in a motorcycle parked in the market, exploded killing two people. Such things do flare up incidents and we have to keep calm," said S N Singh, Senior Superintendent of Police, Guwahati.

"I was talking on phone when I heard a loud sound. Then I saw smoke coming out. I had to run to save myself," said Prakash, an eyewitness.

The blast followed ethnic clashes in eastern Assam on Sunday, in which five people were killed. The clashes were sparked by the killing of a civilian in an anti-insurgency operation.

A curfew was imposed in the far eastern town of Digboi after Sunday's violence.

Clashes erupted on Sunday when ethnic Assamese blocked roads to protest against the killing of a civilian by security forces more than a week ago.

The blockade restricted the movement of non-Assamese who work in tea gardens in the area. Armed with spears, bows and arrows, they tried to break the roadblocks. In the ensuing violence, five people were killed.

Four Assamese are missing, a police officer said.
