Workers of the World, Unite. All You Have to Lose...

...are your children. If you're Nepalese, that is:

KATMANDU, Nepal — Soldiers rescued about 600 students who were abducted from their classrooms in western Nepal in a series of bold strikes by communist rebels, army officials said Sunday.

....The students were rounded up and taken Friday from village schools ....

The rebels - who claim to be inspired by Chinese revolutionary Mao Zedong - have fought since 1996 to overthrow Nepal's constitutional monarchy and replace it with a communist state.

No child left behind, Little Red Book style.
