THE people's war' in Nepal took a nasty turn on February 27, when six Maoist activists were killed in police firing in the western hill district of Rukum, one of the three areas most affected by the latest incidents of Maoist-led insurgency that had begun 15 days before. Events seemed to be moving inexorably towards a bloody showdown between the government forces and activists of the United People's Front (UPF), who have declared an all-out war against the establishment.

Security was beefed up at Pipalkot village in Rukum after Maoists chopped off the hands and legs of a brother of the village chairman. A dozen or so suspects have been rounded up but many more hard-core guerrillas, including women cadres, are at large and could strike any time.
