Nepal Maoist fighters in limbo

About 20,000 rebels remain in containment camps, awaiting integration into army.

    About 20,000 Maoist fighters remain in containment camps in Nepal, waiting to be rehabilitated into society or allowed to join the Nepalese army.

    As part of a peace deal with the government after years of rebellion, the Maoist fighters were to be integrated into the Nepal army and security services.

    But three years on, this hasn't happened ... something they see as a broken promise.
