#NepalHighAlert: Triple Blast Rocks Kathmandu on Peaceful Sunday

Three blasts across Nepal’s capital Kathmandu sent shockwaves across the country on May 26, 2019.

The blasts occurred in the north, center and the outskirts of the city on Sunday afternoon. While the first two blasts occurred one after the other in just a few minutes, the third one was set off several hours later and injured two persons involved in the blasts.

According to a police official, a Maoist splinter group is currently being suspected for the attacks as the groups’ supporters were arrested by authorities. The same suspect was responsible for the February 2019 bombing that killed one person in February 2019.
