Maoist rebels abduct 50 Nepalese teenagers
By Biswajyoti Das

Chaimale, Nepal - Maoist guerrillas have abducted at least 50 students and a dozen teachers from a school near the Nepali capital to try to force them to back a campaign against the constitutional monarchy, officials said on Monday.

The rebels dragged the children, aged between 13 and 16, and their teachers at gunpoint from the school in Chaimale village on Sunday afternoon, police officer Deepak Ranjit said.

In the past the Maoists have kidnapped school and university students from the countryside, but have sent them back after one or two days of indoctrination, analysts said.

1. The Monarchy
of Nepal has got to go. Bush has been supporting them against peasant uprisings. Big surprise there. It should be interesting to see how Nepal pans out. The Chinese who are moving in a more capitalist direction have supported the monarchy over the peasant militias as well. The peasants now control almost the entire countryside.
