Four bombs exploded almost simultaneously Sunday in and around the Nepalese capital, two of them near the army headquarters, killing at least two people and wounding 13 more, police said. Seven of the wounded were in a critical condition in a hospital, said Basu Nepal, a police officer. One of the bombs exploded inside a moving bus about 300 meters (1,000 feet) from the army headquarters in the capital, Katmandu.
