KATHMANDU: Nepalese officials began counting votes on Wednesday, with local media hailing the high turnout in polls seen as vital in cementing a peace process seven years since the end of a civil war. Millions of Nepalis cast their ballots on Tuesday for a constituent assembly tasked with writing a new constitution, defying threats of poll violence by a breakaway faction of the Maoist party.
