Nepalese police open fire on lawyers

This isn't good, and it certainly provides perspective to anyone who takes our own civil liberties for granted.
KATHMANDU: Nepalese police opened fire on protesting lawyers as King Gyanendra called for general elections in a bid to end the ongoing democracy protests. Three lawyers were injured and 70 were arrested when police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to break up the protest outside the Supreme Court.
The courage of Nepal's lawyers under these most trying circumstances is truly inspirational.
