Separatist rebels in the north-eastern Indian state of Assam say they have killed two people - one of them a soldier - in a series of attacks.
More than 20 others have been injured in the attacks over the past two days, the rebels said.
The state government has not commented on the attacks.
The rebels, belonging to the United Liberation Front of Assam (Ulfa), say they are trying to enforce a boycott of the Indian Independence day next week.
The Ulfa began peace talks with the federal government last year.
But the BBC's Subir Bhaumik in Calcutta says the talks appeared to have reached an impasse.
Ulfa rebels have been fighting for independence since 1979 in a struggle which has claimed 10,000 lives.
