Two assailants with guns and grenades ambushed a police recruitment center in Rampur, India, killing seven officers and a civilian, a police official said.

The slain officers belonged to a special force created to fight insurgents, said Brij Lal, a senior police official in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Police did not say which group they suspected, but in the past authorities have blamed violence in the region on militants trying to spark unrest between India's Hindu majority and its Muslim minority.
