Gunmen Friday opened fire on a busy market in a restive area of northeast India, killing 12 people and wounding several others, police said.Police said there were around six gunmen, one of whom was killed after the attack by security forces.Bodo guerrillas have in recent years launched ferocious attacks on both Muslim settlers and other tribal communities in the tea-growing state of Assam.In 2014 thousands of people fled their homes in Assam after a series of coordinated attacks by armed rebels that left at least 69 people dead, 18 of them children.Two years earlier, ethnic clashes in the same area claimed about 100 lives and displaced more than 400,000 people.
