overthrow the Nepal monarchy though a rural uprising. This conflict
has grown in intensity in recent months. Chinese aid to the rebels is
beginning of the war on February 13, 1996, when the Communist Party
of Nepal (Maoist ) began the war against the government. Approximatly
13,000 people died in the ensuing conflict. By early 2006, the
government's control of the countryside was weak to nonexistant,
while political turmoil in the capital aided the rebels. In May,

rebels, and the Maoists agreed to begin talks.
