Caption only: Charles reaches out to young victims in Nepal

Prince Charles shakes hand with HIV-positive Indian girl at a women's shelter in Katmandu, Nepal, Sunday. The women and children at the shelter were either rescued from brothels in India or were victims of domestic abuse. While there he watched children perform a dance on AIDS awareness. On a three-day visit to Nepal that began Friday, the prince of Wales met King Birendra and chatted with Gurkha veterans who served in the British army. He is colonel-in-chief of the Royal Gurkha Rifles.
