Nepal caught in political turmoil

Unresolved dispute over president's powers bring thousands of Maoists onto the streets.

    Maoists in Nepal have brought tens of thousands of supporters onto the streets of the capital Kathmandu to protest against the governing coalition.  

    The Moaists lost power in May, after the president overruled their decision to sack the army chief. 

    They are demanding that the government debate the issue of presidential power. 

    Nepal is still in the process of implementing the peace deal between the government and the Maoists, but as Tony Birtley reports, with neither side willing to compromise, the demonstrations will continue and the country's fragile peace process remain stalled.
