Nepal Supreme Court suspends civil war law

Legislation was intended to give justice to victims of the country's past conflict.

    Nepal's Supreme Court has suspended a long awaited law, which is supposed to bring justice to victims of the country's 10-year conflict.

    It has been seven years since the government and the Maoist guerillas agreed to address war crimes through a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    But many families with missing or dead loved ones, one of the 16,000 who died, justice cannot come too soon.
