Nepal at political crossroads

Leaders in talks over a peace accord, interim parliament and new constitution.

    Nepal's government could collapse if an agreement is not reached to extend a Friday deadline on a new constitution.

    Efforts to rescue the country's peace plan are already under way, but if the parties fail to reach a consensus, the interim parliament as well as all laws and the functions of state, will simply cease to exist.
