Nepal has extended a curfew in the capital, Kathmandu, designed to prevent more anti-Muslim rioting.

The move came as the Himalayan kingdom marked a national day of mourning for 12 Nepalis murdered by Islamic militants in Iraq.

The curfew was imposed on Wednesday after thousands of rioters stormed the main mosque in Kathmandu.

Recruitment companies of the sort that employed the 12 men as kitchen hands and labourers were also attacked, as were the offices of Arab airlines.

Two people were killed in clashes with police as crowds chanted anti-Muslim and anti-government slogans.

The unrest came despite Nepalese Muslim organisations issuing statements expressing horror at the murders.

The killings were video-taped and shown on an Islamic website. The group which kidnapped the men had made no demands for their release.

The curfew in Kathmandu was lifted for a few hours early to allow residents to buy essential commodities.

Soldiers carrying automatic weapons patrolled the deserted streets of the nation's capital, where a blockade by Maoist rebels fighting to overturn the monarchy ended last week.

Hardly surprising, the video of the murders ranks as one of the most repulsive things I have ever seen.

I can imagine the footage having seen 1980's footage of the murder of a Russian soldier. The fact there were 12 men is repugnant.
