Terrorists believed to be Sikh extremists stabbed to death three Hindu children in Punjab, and eight other people were killed in attacks in the troubled northern Indian state, police reported. In the Sikh holy city of Amritsar, police fired into the air to stop rioting by Hindus protesting the death of a youth shot by police during an anti-Sikh demonstration. Sikh militants are conducting a campaign of terror in an effort to gain a separate nation in Punjab.
