Who is going to help Nepal?

The Maoists are going to destroy one of the most incredible countries in the world.
Nepal's civil war is exacting a high price on the country's future as Maoist rebels forcibly recruit schoolchildren and indoctrinate them into their bloody struggle to overthrow the royal family.

Last month about 4,500 pupils, aged between nine and 15, were marched from their schools in five districts and forced to attend a Maoist rally where they were exhorted to abandon their education and join the revolution, according to witnesses. It was the first event of a six-month children's campaign planned by the rebels.

The authorities meanwhile sounded the alarm yesterday over 90 school students seized by rebels in a remote village and still missing five days later.

The 14- to 16-year-olds were taken last Wednesday in Paudiamrai village, 190 miles west of Kathmandu, the military said.
