Explosion rips through India train

At least three people are killed and scores wounded in blast in India's Assam state.

    No one has claimed responsibility yet for the attack.

    Separatist rebels are often blamed for attacks in Assam state, a region wracked by violence over the past few decades.

    But co-ordinated bomb blasts in Assam in October, which killed at least 77 people, were blamed on attackers from neighbouring Bangladesh in league with separatists.
