24 03.06.2015 Инфо

The Nepalese police say they are giving self-defence classes to women and children earthquake survivors who are living in temporary shelters in the capital Kathmandu.
A police official said women and children were being taught basic judo and how to punch and kick.
Police say there are around 100,000 people in camps in Kathmandu following the devastating earthquake in April.
Tara Devi Thapa, deputy superintendent of police in the Kathmandu Valley said "When we visited these temporary shelters we found there had been violence against women and children,"
Ms. Thapa continued by saying that there had been a high demand from earthquake victims to learn how to defend themselves, and the police were considering offering the programme in all camps in the capital.
