Maoist rebels kill 60 troops in eastern India

A senior police official says Maoist rebels have killed at least 60 paramilitary soldiers in attacks in the eastern Indian state of Chhattisgarh. The assaults mark the most casualties against government forces since they launched an offensive against the rebels last year.
R.K. Vij, the Inspector General of state police says at least 81 troops were part of a patrol party that came under attack in the rebel stronghold of Dantewada early Tuesday.
He said 60 bodies of the soldiers killed in at least two attacks have been recovered so far. He says fighting between troops and rebels was continuing in the area.
