Seven dead in fresh Maoist violence in Nepal

Seven people have been killed in fresh Maoist rebel violence in Nepal, including four security force personnel who died in a landmine explosion, an official said. The blast, which also seriously injured seven security men, occurred Sunday in the far west of Nepal, a stronghold of the rebels who have been waging an increasingly deadly struggle for a communist republic since 1996. “The landmine exploded near Hagulte on the Dhangadhi-Dadeldhura highway in farwestern Nepal Sunday,” said the security official who did not want to be named. In other violence, a woman was killed and three people seriously injured when a landmine exploded Monday in western Nepal, the official said.
