Nepalese riot police personnel stand guard in front of a barricade during a general strike in Kathmandu January 20, 2015. The general strike was called by various opposition parties, including the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) to demand that the draft of the new constitution is done on time through consensus. The new assembly was elected to write a constitution after the abolition of the 240-year-old feudal monarchy that the Maoists fought against.
