Deposed king vows to stay in Nepal
Nepal's former king said Wednesday he is not going to leave his country even though the monarchy has been abolished.
Gyanendra came to power in 2001 following the assassination of King Birendra and his family.
Ex-King Gyanendra, 60, made remarks to reporters before departing the Narayanhiti royal palace in Kathmandu.
He will live as a civilian in the former Himalayan kingdom that was made a republic last month, and he will reside in a summer palace on a forested hilltop outside the capital.
