A Motorcycle riders line up waiting their turn to pass through a narrow opening beside smoldering tires in Babar Mahal, Kathmandu on Friday, September 28, 2007. The fire was set by two to three people who claimed to be ‘DV Victims’, people whose name were drawn in USA’s annual Diversity Visa program but rejected by the Embassy here for different reason including insufficient or wrong papers. The fire, which covered the expanse of the six-lane Araniko Highway, was set at the center of the capital along one of the most used stretch. The capital is seeing a wave of violence by a small bunch of people, so much so that the larger mass has gotten used to it and worry only about how to get through the fire.
