Nepalese monarchist murdered

One of King Gyanendra's few politician supporters has been murdered. So this is how the republic comes into existence: with the slaughter of its opponents, just like most of its predecessors. It would seem that someone is anxious to make my prediction that Nepal is heading down the path of France, Russia, and Iran come true. Who with any knowledge of history could be surprised?
