Maoist guerrillas Saturday blocked a road in Orissa's Koraput district by felling trees to protest the government's crackdown on them, police said.

Road communication between Narayanpatna and Laxmipur town was disrupted in at least one place due to the road block, Deputy Inspector General of police Sanjeeb Panda told IANS.

The rebels also pasted posters on trees and other places protesting the anti-Maoist operation in the region, he said.

Maoists are active in more then half of the state's 30 districts. The southern district of Koraput, some 500 km from here, is considered their stronghold.
