U.S. opponents attack Coca-Cola plant in India
HYDERABAD, India -- Maoist guerillas protesting the U.S. strikes against Afghanistan attacked a Coca-Cola plant in southern India on Sunday, blasting dynamite and causing significant damage to the facility.
Elsewhere around the world, protests against the American military campaign were more peaceful, with demonstrators filling streets and crowding mosques. Thousands turned out in Spain, Thailand, Indonesia and other countries.
At least a dozen armed guerillas of the outlawed Peoples' War Group attacked the Coca Cola plant near the town of Mangalagiri in India's southern Andhra Pradesh state, police said.
The guerrillas cut phone and electric lines before overpowering security guards and blasting several parts of the plant with dynamite and land mines.
Police estimated the damage at $140,000. Coca-Cola said there were no injuries because the plant had been closed for maintenance, but it was beefing up security at other plants.
The attackers left a note that said America is the biggest terrorist state and is trying to dominate all other countries, according to Police Superintendent A. Purnachandra Rao.
