Nepal families seek justice for the missing

Years after civil war, hundreds of people are still missing and government has given few answers.

    Six years after Nepal’s civil war ended, hundreds of people who disappeared while in state custody are still missing.

    It is presumed many of them were killed but nobody has ever been prosecuted.

    Now, the government is proposing plans to grant amnesty to alleged human rights violators, many of whom continue to serve in senior positions.
