Maoists kill 3 Indian troopers

Suspected Maoist guerrillas shot dead three troopers yesterday in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh, the third deadly attack on security forces in recent days.
A police spokesman in the state capital Raipur said a "large number" of rebels attacked a paramilitary patrol in Dantewada district, a remote region that is known as a major Maoist stronghold.
On Thursday, Maoist fighters, including some female combatants, killed 10 policemen in a landmine ambush in Dantewada, less than a day after five other officers were gunned down elsewhere in the impoverished state.
