Assam paralysed by rebel strike

The United Liberation Front of Assam (Ulfa) has called the strike to protest against the death of their founder, Robin Handique, in jail last week. It comes a day after Ulfa said it was ready to hold peace talks with the Indian government. Robin Handique, 68, died in a jail in the town of Tezpur.
