Under Pressure

A hospital in Nepal struggles with the current unrest there.

The hospital has not been exempt from the state’s heavy-handed methods. Last Thursday, security forces encircled the hospital compound as the police marched in, broke the locks of the mortuary door and hauled out the bodies of three people killed in the demonstrations, according to hospital officials. The victims had been shot in the head, chest and abdomen.
