Deadly Violence Resurfaces in Nepal’s Political Turmoil

The United Ethnic Liberation Front claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack. The group could be trying to get attention for its demands by attacking the state oil company at a time of public grievance against recent fuel-price increases and energy shortages, experts said.

A bomb exploded near a government office in Katmandu, Nepal, killing three men and injuring seven in what appeared to be the first major terrorist incident in the country since the end of a civil war six years ago.

The police said a group calling itself the United Ethnic Liberation Front took responsibility for Monday’s blast, which went off near the gate of state-owned Nepal Oil Corp. and close to government offices. No details about the group were immediately available.
