KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Four people were killed and seven others injured on Sunday in three separate explosions in the Nepali capital, Kathmandu , and police said they suspected a Maoist splinter group may have been responsible.

Gyawali said that "a pamphlet from the group had been found at the site of the first blast".

"We are investigating all incidents and have stepped up the security," police spokesman Bishwa Raj Pokharel told the AFP news agency.

The incidents come on the eve of a nationwide strike called by the same Maoist splinter group, protesting death of their cadre in a police encounter over a week ago.

Nepal has enjoyed a relatively peaceful environment since the end of a decade-long civil war which concluded with a peace deal in 2006. The main group of the former rebels has joined the party that runs the government.

But some former fighters have broken away, accusing their previous leaders of betraying their original revolutionary ideals.

In February, the breakaway group was implicated in an explosion that killed one person outside the office of a telecom company Ncell, part of Malaysia-based Axiata Group Berhad.

The government outlawed the group following the incident, banning their activities.
