UN special envoy arrived to Nepal shortly after Maoists attack

Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has met the UN special envoy to Nepal. They had a discussion on the country's long-running Maoist insurgency. Details of the talks were not released to the public, but they must have been focussed on the role of UN in bringing an end to the Maoist insurgency, quotes news.bbc.co.uk.

Yesterday, reports nytimes.com, maoist rebels ambushed two police trucks in Nepal on Monday, killing 21 police officers and wounding 12 in stepped-up violence that analysts said dimmed hopes for early peace talks.

Surviving police officers said hundreds of rebels surrounded the police convoy and fired from automatic weapons at the first truck. Soon after, there was a blast under the second truck.

One survivor of the attack, Dev Raj Khadka, said the wounded officers fought a 90-minute gun battle with the guerrillas before the rebels fled. "Then I fell unconscious and found myself at the hospital," he said.

As cited on thestar.co.za, this attack is the biggest since Sher Bahadur Deuba was reappointed prime minister on June 2, took place at Khairikhola, 450km west of Kathmandu, the capital.

Maoists have been fighting since 1996 to overthrow Nepal's constitutional monarchy and set up a communist republic in the world's only Hindu kingdom.
