SECURITYMEN KILL 13 NAGA CIVILIANS

Six died when Army mistook coal mine workers for insurgents; rioting ensued in which soldiers killed seven others in 'self-defence'

Security forces in Nagaland on Saturday opened fire on civilians twice - once in a botched-up operation and the second time during the rioting that followed -- killing 13.

In the first firing, which killed six civilians, army personnel mistook coal mine workers who were singing songs and returning home in a pick-up van as insurgents belonging to the Yung Aung faction of a banned outfit the NSCN (K).

The Army was purportedly acting on a tip-off about the movement of the NSCN (K) cadres, which proved to be incorrect.

When the slain workers failed to reach their homes, local youth and villagers went in search of them and surrounded the army vehicles. In the ensuing melee, one soldier was killed and several army vehicles were burnt. Soldiers who reportedly fired in self-defence killed another seven civilians, said police officials.

The riots spilled over into Sunday afternoon when angry mobs vandalised the offices of the Konyak Union and an Assam Rifles camp in the area.

The Christmas Clock

It was December 2012, a week before Christmas. I was sitting alone at my kitchen table in Missouri, watching the hands of my Christmas clock tick toward the hour. I was waiting to hear it play “Silent Night,” which it did every night at 11 o’clock. The tune always lifted my spirits. But the second hand passed the hour mark without a peep. My heart sank.
