In Nepal, the Maoists formally ended a decade long insurection that killed over 13,000 after signing a treaty in November of 2007. Elections took place on April 10, 2008 that ended the monarchy which has ruled Nepal since the country's birth. Many Nepalis hope it will be a bold move toward creating a modern democracy in this Himalayan nation.The Maoist party held a huge rally in the town of Kiritipur outside of the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu. Over 2,000 supporters crowded the town's main street where many residents watched from high up in their apartments.
