Nepal's communist rebels on Thursday declared a three-month, unilateral cease-fire in their violent campaign against the country's monarchist government. A statement Thursday from the elusive rebel leader Prachanda said his group's fighters would not be involved in any attacks during the three-month period. On Wednesday, the rebels lifted a weeks-long blockade of highways connecting the major towns and cities in the Himilayan kingdom
