Stones Thrown at Nepali King
On Friday, some unknown group of people pelted stones at the motorcade
of Nepal King Gyanendra at Pashupatinath shrine. There were people
shouting anti-royal slogans, and people shouting pro-royal slogans as
well. The festive mood of Mahashivaratri -- the night of Great Shiva --
was overtaken by the political outrage.
