QUEEN Komal recovering after second operation

KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) _ Nepal's new Queen Komal, who was injured in the palace massacre on June 1, completed a second round of surgery in the army hospital Sunday and was recovering well, doctors said.

Komal was shot twice in her left shoulder by Crown Prince Dipendra, who killed his parents and seven other royals at the family dinner.

Though an official inquiry didn't deal with the motive, Dipendra was reported to be unhappy with his parents, King Birendra and Queen Aiswarya, who rejected his choice of a bride.

One of four survivors, Komal underwent her first operation on the day of the massacre.

The three other injured royal family members also were recovering in the military hospital. They didn't require any surgery, doctors said.

Komal had attended the dinner as a member of the royal family.

Her husband, Prince Gyanendra, was first appointed assistant to the crown after the killing of King Birendra. He became the king after the death of Dipendra, who had briefly succeeded his father following the June 1 shooting.

An inquiry by Supreme Court Chief Justice Keshav Prasad Upadhyaya and House Speaker Taranath Ranabhat said on Thursday that Crown Prince Dipendra was the lone gunman, high on drugs and drunk on alcohol.
