Guerrilla block schools, the army goes to Africa

The chaos strategy of Nepali rebels seem to be focusing on schools. After the mass abduction of students and teachers a few days ago, yesterday a student organization close to the maoists called an indefinite strike in all the schools of the kingdom starting June 6.

Meanwhile, King Gyanendra continues to appear scarcely interested in his own country’s troubles: yesterday the Nepali army announced that it will be sending 800 troops to Africa to join the UN peacekeeping mission in Burundi.
