Nepal's political turmoil has deepened as police continued to use tear gas and batons to disperse waves of pro-democracy demonstrators for the third straight day.
Day-time curfew and "shoot-at-sight" warnings did not deter thousands of people from rallying in parts of Kathmandu and other towns, chanting anti-monarchy slogans.
The curfew also has been imposed in the towns of Pokhra and Bharatpur, where two people died during clashes Saturday between security forces and protesters.
A third death was reported Sunday in the town of Banepa, east of the capital Kathmandu after security forces opened fire at protesters.
Nearly 800 people have been put in prison since the demonstrations began last week.
King Gyanendra dismissed the government and seized absolute power in February 2005, saying politicians had failed to quell a decade-long Maoist insurgency that has left thousands of people dead.
