NEW DELHI — Tribal insurgents in northeastern India lined up people of a rival tribe and raked them with gunfire, killing at least 87, a news agency reported Wednesday.

The massacre occurred Tuesday night in the remote state of Manipur, on the border with Myanmar, United News of India said. The region is 1,500 miles east of New Delhi.

Police suspect militants from the outlawed Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland who want to set up their own nation.
