Nepal police said Thursday they fired on demonstrators, killing three, after fresh violence erupted in the country's southern plains where ethnic minority protesters have mounted a months-long battle over a new constitution."Three were killed in Morang in two clashes today," police spokesman Kamal Singh Bam said, adding that the victims included a 65-year-old woman, one of two killed at the activists' programme venue.A 25-year-old man also died when police opened fire on protesters as they attempted to stop a public bus.More than 50 people have been killed in clashes between police and people protesting against the Himalayan nation's new constitution, which demonstrators say leaves them politically marginalized.
