But Prem Suwal, a spokesman for the nine parties, said more than 600 people were arrested for organizing rallies against a proposed anti-terrorism law. Dozens were injured in clashes with police, he said. The strike shut down shops in Katmandu, the capital, and elsewhere.

Police in Nepal arrested 57 opposition protesters Friday as King Gyanendra cut phone service to thwart nationwide demonstrations against his recent seizure of power. The rallies, scheduled for the Himalayan kingdom's annual Democracy Day celebration, were the first major protests since the king took sole control, dismissing the government and declaring a state of emergency. Only eight protesters showed up in the capital, Katmandu, and they were promptly arrested.
