Demonstrators, police clash over new constitution in Nepal

Protesters from southern Nepal scuffle with riot police when they take their campaign against the country's new constitution to the streets of the capital, Kathmandu.

KATHMANDU, NEPAL (Reuters) - Madhesi demonstrators from southern Nepal are clashing with police in Kathmandu.

The Madhesis want their region to become an autonomous state within Nepal. Instead, the country's new constitution will incorporate it into six other provinces.

More than 50 people have been killed during eight months of protests in the south.
