Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) supporters dance during a protest against the government outside the government administration building at Singha Durbar in Kathmandu on November 5, 2009. Nepal's Maoists launched their protests aimed at destabilising the government in a dispute over the military that led to the Maoists' fall from power in May. The former rebels, who fought a decade-long civil war with the state before winning elections last year, stepped down after the president overruled their attempt to sack the army chief.
