PROTESTS IN NEPAL spread to government:
The Nepalese police arrested 25 civil servants who were demonstrating against King Gyanendra's rule inside the Home Ministry compound Tuesday, officials said.

The employees had left their offices and stood outside in the courtyard chanting anti-king slogans when the police rounded them up and took them to a detention center, an official said.

The ministry is the most important government office; it controls the administration and the police force being used against protesters in major cities and towns across Nepal.
