Rebels Resume Attacks After Peace Talks Fail

November 24, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Maoist guerrillas attacked police stations and government installations in Nepal, two days after pulling out of a four-month cease-fire following unsuccessful peace talks, officials said. No deaths or injuries were reported.

Police said the rebels rampaged in at least 15 towns across the Himalayan kingdom, firing guns and stealing weapons from at least one police station.

At Surkhet, 300 miles west of the capital, Katmandu, rebels blew up a helicopter belonging to a private company that recently won a contract to supply helicopters for the army, authorities said.
