About 35 people, mostly civilians, were killed when Maoist rebels detonated a landmine under a bus in central India, the second such attack in as many months.

The incident in the mineral-rich state of Chhattisgarh was the worst since an attack by Maoists in the same region in April, which killed at least 75 policemen.

The victims of yesterday's attack included policemen. The attack was in Dantewada district, said to be the worst hit by four decades of an insurgency described by the government as India's gravest internal security threat. REUTERS
