Nepal king revives dissolved parliament

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepal's King Gyanendra announced the
reinstatement of the kingdom's dissolved parliament on Monday,
meeting a key demand of anti-monarchy protesters who have
brought the nation to a standstill.

"We, through this proclamation, reinstate the house of
representatives which was dissolved on May 22, 2002," he said
on national television.
