Shoes belonging to demonstrators who have fled from riot police lie beside blood from a boy wounded by bamboo batons. Protesters march on the royal palace, demonstrating against King Gyanendra. In February 2005, the monarch had dismissed the government of the country and assumed power. A general strike called by opposition parties in April 2006, was followed by an intensive campaign of anti-royal demonstrations and clashes with police around the country. By the end of the month, the king had capitulated and agreed to the reinstitution of parliament.
