A bomb exploded in a crowded bus station in India's troubled northeastern state of Assam on Friday, killing two people and wounding 10 others.
Police said they suspected rebels belonging to the separatist United Liberation Front of Asom (or U.L.F.A.) were behind the blast in Assam's main city, Guwahati. Police said the bomb was hidden in a vegetable basket, which was left at the crowded station. The group has been fighting for an independent Assamese homeland since 1979.
In a recent spate of attacks, Assam separatist rebels have targeted Hindi-speaking migrants, blaming them for taking scarce jobs in the region.
