Two wounded in Kathmandu bomb blast, leaves 38 injured

Two people have been wounded after a second bomb exploded in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, on the third day of a blockade of the commercial centre called by Maoist rebels.

Police say the suspected rebels detonated the bomb at a Government office in Kathmandu.

A policeman has been wounded when two rebels shot at him before they entered the building in central Kathmandu and planted the bomb.

Splinters from the blast wounded a passing motorcyclist.

Earlier, the guerrillas fighting to topple Nepal's constitutional monarchy set off a bomb at an empty police post on the outskirts of the city.

The blasts are seen as an attempt to scare people and ensure the highway blockade is not violated.
