Torch Relay: Nepal Can Use Deadly Force-Officers Cleared To Open Fire On Protesters
[link to www.kcci.com]

KATMANDU, Nepal -- Soldiers and police in Nepal have been cleared to open fire to stop any protests during China's Olympic torch run to the summit of Mount Everest.

Nepal's Home Ministry said the use of deadly force is only authorized as a last resort.

The troops will first try to persuade protesters to leave during the torch run and will arrest those who stay. If demonstrators defy all nonviolent means of restraint, troops have the option of using weapons.

Twenty-five soldiers and policemen have established camps on the mountain. Climbers will be banned from the mountain's higher elevations during the torch run.

The worldwide torch relay has been the target of demonstrators protesting China's human rights record, including its recent crackdown on Tibet. The climb up Everest, on the border between Nepal and Tibet, is planned for the first few days of May.

On Sunday, the torch arrived in Malaysia for Monday's relay leg.

Buddhists held prayers Sunday in Kuala Lumpur calling for a trouble-free relay there Monday and a peaceful Olympics. The torch will be guarded by 1,000 police.

The risk far outweighs any benefit as the risk will vary from child to child.
