KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) - King Gyanendra dismissed Nepal's government and imposed a state of emergency on Tuesday, cutting off his Himalayan nation from
the rest of the world as telephone and Internet lines were severed, flights diverted and civil liberties severely curtailed.Tuesday's move was the
second time in three years that the king has taken control of the tiny South Asian constitutional monarchy, a throwback to the era of absolute power
enjoyed by Nepal's kings before King Birendra, the current king's elder brother, introduced democracy in 1990.
