Protesters gathered in front of the Kathmandu office of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Wednesday to demand justice for people who suffered human rights abuses during Nepal’s 10-year civil war. The commission, created in 2014 for a two-year term, was in February extended for another year, but people who experienced human rights abuses worry the war criminals will never be called to account for their actions. Sabitri Shrestha, pictured, says a Maoist soldier killed her 32-year-old brother in 1998. When another brother reported that death, he, too, was shot dead in front of his young daughter, Rachana Shrestha, who later committed suicide when she was just 12 years old.
