India-Pakistan: November 6, 2004


  Several thousand Indian troops have cleared two thousand communist rebels out of camps in Manipur (northeast India). The operation has taken several days, and uncovered about a hundred camps. About 25 rebels were killed and 34 captured. The rest fled, some into neighboring Myanmar. But there, they often encountered Myanmar troops, who have been newly stationed along the border to try and prevent the communist groups from freely crossing. The communist Maoist rebels have increasingly built up their system of camps in Manipur, and this recently reached the point where the Indian government considered it more than just a nuisance.
