Nepal enacted its first republican constitution Sunday, and the news was greeted with violence, demonstrations and disapproval from the country's biggest neighbor.
Many ethnic groups in Nepal are protesting how the new constitution divides up the country, claiming it will dilute their representation in the new parliament.
Demonstrations have turned violent in the southern region of Nepal, causing at least 40 deaths over the past few weeks.
