Nepal’s government imposes curfew

Nepal's royal government imposed an 11-hour curfew in the capital Kathmandu on Friday. This follows the death of another protester wounded on thursday at a rally against King Gyanendra's rule. It took the number of demonstrators killed by security forces to 14. According to ABC News, protesters were determined to take to the streets again on Friday, despite the curfew warnings. The government warned people to stay indoors and said those who violated the order would be shot. Demonstrations against the king's rule have been raging since opposition parties launched a general strike on the 6th of this month.
