Anger grows after Indian army’s botched ambush killed civilians – BBC News

After Indian security forces killed at least 14 civilians in a botched ambush near the Myanmar border, their loved ones are left angry.

An army patrol mistakenly opened fire on miners returning home after work, killing six men. Eight more civilians and an Indian soldier died when angry locals confronted troops.

This was the deadliest spell of violence in years in Nagaland, which has long been roiled by an insurgency led by local militant groups.

India’s home minister Amit Shah has expressed “deep anguish” over the killings. But Mr Shah’s statement in parliament, that the army fired because the truck carrying the villagers tried to speed away when asked to stop, has angered protesters even more.
