Maoist rebels in Nepal have abducted 11 unarmed soldiers, just hours after declaring a three-month cease-fire.

Nepalese military officials (Saturday) said the soldiers were abducted some 500 kilometers east of the capital of Kathmandu as they traveled home on vacations.

Officials said the guerillas, who have limited communications, might have been unaware of the ceasefire.

The rebels declared a cease-fire Thursday after Nepal's prime minister promised to draw up a new constitution and to redefine the role of the monarchy. Prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala Friday also promised to call elections for the constitutional assembly.

In their first parliamentary session in four years, lawmakers agreed to discuss the proposal Sunday. They also agreed to discuss whether to hold talks with the Maoist rebels and declare a ceasefire.
