EFSAS comments on tensions and escalation of Maoist violence in Nepal


On 26 May, a string of bomb blasts in three separate locations shook the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, resulting in four people killed and more than seven injured. The Nepal’s Army bomb disposal unit has since then defused bombs across numerous other districts. The following day the Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) claimed responsibility for the Sunday bomb blasts and launched a nationwide strike against the killing of one of its members by the police force, which happened on 22 May.
