Situation Update in Nepal

Situation Update
January 31, 2008

Nepal is now prepared for the Election of Constituent Assembly on April 10, 2008. To make it more participatory, election campaigns are being held in the different parts of Nepal. In a meeting organised by seven-party alliance (SPA) on January 30, 2008 in Birgunj which is 276 kms east of Kathmandu, minor bombs(Improvised Explosive Device) went off outside the Narayani Stadium. The blast injured dozens of people and there is no report of human casualty in the incident. Tourists were not injured in the incident as Birgunj- a bordering town of Nepal located close to Indian city of Raxual- is the place not frequented by tourists.

Police is investigating on the issue and high alert security is arranged around the area. The security personnel have re-affirmed the commitment for peace and security for the Constituent Assembly Election.
