Thousands of Maoist supporters clashed with police in Nepal's capital Sunday while protesting against the president, whose refusal to dismiss the army chief led to the recent collapse of the previous Maoist-led government. Several people were injured on both sides. The protesters gathered near the complex in Katmandu that houses the offices of the prime minister and government ministries, according to an Associated Press cameraman at the scene. The police prevented the Maoist supporters from surrounding the complex, resulting in the clashes. No police officials were immediately available for comment.
