Nepalese police detain anti-government protesters near the airport in Katmandu, Nepal, Monday.

The Associated Press reports: Nepalese police detained anti-government protesters who were demanding the resignation of Nepalese Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai near the airport in Kathmandu, Nepal, on Monday. The protesters tried to block Bhattarai's motorcade as he returned home Monday from a U.N. conference in Brazil. Bhattarai has been leading a caretaker government since last month, but opposition parties want him to resign so a new government that includes representatives from all major parties can take over and conduct elections in November.
