2 bombs planted by suspected Maoist rebels have killed at least 12 people in the eastern Indian state of Chhattisgarh as voting continues in the general election.

The first blast hit a bus carrying election officials in Bijapur district, police said, killing 7.

The second attack - half an hour later - killed five police in an ambulance in the Bastar district.

India began five weeks of general election polling last Monday.

Election officials said that several people were also injured in the separate attack on the ambulance, which took place in the village of Kamanar.
