King Gyanendra,

leader of Nepal, fired the entire government and declared a state of emergency in February, saying the government had failed to make progress toward elections and to pursue negotiations with Maoist rebel groups. Many of the country's politicians were placed under house arrest, phone and Internet lines were cut, and the airports were closed. The state of emergency was lifted in April, but many of the restrictions have remained.
