NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian police say Maoist rebels have killed a cameraman working for a state-run television channel and two policemen in an attack in an insurgency-hit state in central India.

Police officer P. Sunder Raj says two other police officers were wounded in the attack Tuesday in Dantewada district in Chhattisgarh state.

Police said a cameraman for Doordarshan TV was visiting the area ahead of upcoming state elections, and was riding on the back of a motorbike driven by a police officer.

On Saturday, rebels killed four paramilitary soldiers in a bomb blast in the state.

The Maoist rebels, inspired by Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, have been fighting the Indian government for more than four decades, demanding land and jobs for tenant farmers, the poor and indigenous communities.
