Anguish follows riots in Assam, India

A woman cries near the remains of her house after it was burnt by rioters in Kharabari Charak Math, a village in the Barpeta district of Assam, north-eastern India on August 29, 2012.

Unidentified assailants killed one person and burnt down five houses after members of the All Assam Minority Students Union who had been taking part in a rally clashed with local youths, India Today reported.

The Associated Press reported last week that at least 80 people had been killed and 400,000 displaced in several weeks of clashes in Assam between ethnic Bodo people and Muslim settlers, the worst violence seen in the region since the mid-1990s.
