Assam 19 killed and thousands flee july 23 2012

Bodo tribal people flee their homes in Kokrajhar district, about 230 kms from Guwahati, the capital city of the northeastern state of Assam during violent clashes on July 23, 2012. Police issued shoot-on-sight orders on July 23 in a bid to quell violent clashes between Bodo tribal groups and Muslim settlers over land rights in India's remote northeast that have prompted thousands of villagers to flee their homes and left 19 people dead.
