Nepal steps up security at all Buddhist shrines

Security in major Buddhist shrines across Nepal has been beefed up since a series of bombs went off on the Indian holy site of Bodh Gaya, Sunday July 7th.

Although local police have not received any concrete intelligence report that pilgrimage centers may be targeted in Nepal, they are keeping most of the sites under tight control including Lumbini the birthplace of Buddha, while a predictably tense national election campaign nears.
