If you hadn't had noticed the Nepalese King has ordered a shoot to kill policy on people breaking curfew. So thousands went out to dare him to do just that.
Nepal alas is a basket case. One the one hand you have a King who inherited his job when his nephew high on cocaine slaughtered the rest of the family, and who banned parliament and became an absolute ruler. On the other hand you have equally whacked Maoist terrorists in the countryside killing anyone with a snifter of government and dragooning rurals and their kids into an ideological war that is more suited to 1950's cultural revolution.
A horrible, unpleasant, sticky mess of yuck yuck.
Unfortunately there is no oil so the US will be unable to intervene :)
