At least two people were wounded on Friday by a bomb in Assam, police said.

The blast took place in Lakhimpur district, about 320 km east of Assam's main city Guwahati. The bomb was found and picked up by a scrap dealer, who was one of the wounded, a police official said.

Separatists have been fighting the government for decades in Assam and neighbouring regions. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast.
