Nepal: Maoists Mugged by Ethnic Rivalry


September 10, 2007: In the last week, seven bombs have been planted in the capital. Two were defused and five went off. Four have died, and over 30 wounded. Southern separatists claimed responsibility, although the Maoists blamed royalists. The Maoists feel they are losing power to the separatists and tribal parties. Maoist splinter groups are fighting each other, and the Maoists have revived their "peoples courts" to try and restore order in areas they control. The national elections take place in two months, and there's fear that the Maoists will resume fighting if the voting doesn't go their way.
