Two people were killed and five injured on Friday in Assam terror attack.

Guwahati: Two people were killed and six injured on Friday when militants opened fire in a village in Assam's Tinsukia district, police said.
The attack is suspected to have been carried out by the anti-talk faction of the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), Assam Police chief Mukesh Sahay told IANS.
Four to five gunmen entered Philobari village and opened indiscriminate fire on the unsuspecting villagers, he said.
Philobari has a considerable Hindi-speaking population, migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, mostly working as daily wage labourers. 
"Our operations are on to catch the killers," Sahay said. 
The attack comes in the wake of that on August 5 at the weekly Balajan market near Kokrajhar town, in which over 14 people, belonging to different communities, were killed by the anti-talk faction of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland (NDFB).
