Nepalese students affiliated to various political parties participate in a torch rally against the hike in fuel prices in Katmandu, Nepal, on Sept. 11. The rise in prices came into effect last week and student organizations say the protest will carry on until the government addresses their demand of relieving the price hike, according to news reports.
