A protester tries to run from the riot police personnel (unseen) trying to stop the torch rally in Kathmandu April 6, 2015. According to the local media reports, Maoist parties rallied against the Supreme Court verdict that disallowed providing mass amnesty to those facing accusations for crimes during civil war. Almost a decade has passed since the end of a civil war that pitted Maoist guerillas against the state and killed more than 17,000 people. Nepal's political parties have repeatedly missed deadlines to write the new republic's first constitution. At the heart of the dispute is disagreement over creating new provinces based on ethnicity, a move backed by the former rebels. REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar

Nepal's chief justice took over as the head of an interim unity government on Thursday, the country's main political parties said, a move aimed at ending a political deadlock in a nation still recovering from a decade of civil war. Newly-appointed Prime Minister Regmi replaced Maoist Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai under an agreement signed by the four major political parties and will head the new administration until a national election is held in either May or June.

Nepal's former Maoist rebels on Tuesday handed over control of their fighters and weapons to the national army, in a move likely to bolster a faltering peace process nearly six years after a civil war ended. Thousands of Maoist fighters, who battled the Nepal Army during the decade-long civil war, have been housed in camps across the volatile Himalayan republic waiting to join the national army.

PORTRAITS OF COMMUNIST PARTY LEADERS ARE DISPLAYED AT BOOKSTORE IN CHINA'S CHENGDU.
Portraits of Russian and Chinese Communist Party founders and leaders (from-L) Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and Deng Xiaoping are displayed at a bookstore in Chengdu, capital of China's southwestern Sichuan province, July 19, 2004. Although Mao's thought remains the state ideology after his death in 1976, it was Deng Xiaoping's "seek truth from facts" doctrine that has reduced the influence of Maoism in China's political policies.

JOAN HINTON CHECKS MILKING EQUIPMENT AT A DAIRY FARM IN BEIJING.
American Joan Hinton, 76, checks milking equipment at a dairy farm in Beijing. Joan, from Vermont, was an atomic physicist who helped build the atomic bomb in the U.S. but she quit and went to China to work as a farmer in the 1940s when Washington dropped the bombs on Japan's Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Joan married fellow American Sid Engst, a farmer from Gooseville Corners in upstate New York, in Hunan province in 1949 - the founding year of the People's Republic of China. The two veteran communists said they were glad U.S. President Bill Clinton will be visiting China this month to improve Sino-U.S. relationship but disillusioned to see China abandon Maoism.

The two veteran communists said they were glad U.S. President Bill Clinton will be visiting China to improve Sino-U.S. relationship but disillusioned to see China abandoning Maoism.
