Nepal ruler restores parliament

Nepal ruler restores parliament

The king has been running the country directly since February 2005
Nepal's embattled King Gyanendra has agreed to reinstate Parliament, in an effort to end weeks of unrest by opponents to his absolute rule.

The move is aimed at "protecting multiparty democracy and restoring peace," he said in a televised address.

The lower house will convene on Friday, he added. A wave of protests has left at least 14 people dead since 6 April.

The king assumed direct powers in February 2005, saying parties were unable to deal with Maoist rebels.

On Monday thousands demonstrators defied a shoot-on-sight curfew in the capital Kathmandu, ahead of another major rally already planned for Tuesday.
