Nepal's government imposed a daytime curfew in Katmandu and surrounding areas Sunday, a day after tens of thousands of demonstrators swept through the capital and clashed repeatedly with security forces. Dozens of people were badly hurt in Saturday's clashes as protesters, opposition leaders and Maoist insurgents rejected King Gyanendra's offer to return to a multiparty democracy. Opposition alliance leaders say the king's offer fell short of a key opposition demand, the return of Parliament and election of a special assembly to write a constitution. The government announcement said Sunday's curfew would be imposed for 11 hours in Katmandu and the suburbs of Lalitpur and Bhaktapur.
