Rioters took to the streets in Nepal's capital.. Katmandu to demand a full explanation of Friday's palace shooting that left nine royals dead. This as Prince Gyanendra became Nepal's third king.. in four days - at a palace ceremony.
Many of the rioters say they do not believe the government's claim that Crown Prince Dipendra gunned down his parents and other relatives in a fit of rage before shooting himself.
Though he was in hospital on life support, Dipendra was declared king in the wake of the murders..before his death was announced Monday.
Sot: Shewta/(1st name only provided) Mourner "I don't believe Dipendra did this to his family.. nobody believes it.. he could have done this - no."
Officials say the shootings started after an argument with Dipendra's mother.. the Queen , after she may have rejected his choice of a bride. Others blame a political or military conspiracy. Some say the new monarch is to blame. Nearly everyone wants answers.
Nat Pop: Demonstrators
Now newly crowned King Gyanendra faces his first test...overcoming a national nightmare with a clear explanation of the palace shootings. To try to control the volatile situation.. a dusk to dawn curfew has been declared with the army instructed to shoot any violator on sight. JJ Sig Out ))
