Thousands Demand Restoration of Democracy in Nepal


At least 15,000 Nepalese protesters took to the streets of the southeastern town of Itahari Saturday, demanding restoration of democracy in Nepal.

The protest was organized by Nepal's Communist Party, which has been agitating for several months against King Gyanendra and the pro-monarchy government he installed more than a year ago after dismissing the elected government.

Riot police watched over Saturday's protest, but did not intervene.
