    Hundreds of opposition activists arrested in Nepal

    The BBC brings us news of more arrests in Nepal:

    An opposition spokesman said up to 1,000 people had been detained ahead of rallies planned nationwide to mark King Gyanendra's seizure of absolute power. Dozens were held in Kathmandu during a women's rally, the spokesman said. Official figures were unavailable. Local elections are due next week which the opposition are boycotting.
