Maoïsten in Nepal eisen macht terug

Maoist activists and supporters take part in a protest rally after the successful completion of the first day of a three-day nationwide general strike in Kathmandu December 20, 2009. Maoists in Nepal launched a general strike on Sunday, shuttering businesses and keeping vehicles off the roads in their biggest protest since they quit the government and plunged the Himalayan nation into crisis. The Maoists demand a return to power, saying they were "unconstitutionally" forced to resign seven months ago in a row with the president over the sacking of the army chief.
