Foreign journalists who came to Nepal were caught with their pants down when the communication system went dead just after the royal address. Newspapers and television stations around the world decided to paradrop reporters with satellite communication equipment but many were stuck at Delhi airport. "We arrived at 11AM but had to wait until night because none of the flights were able to fly to Kathmandu," explained a journalist who arrived here at midnight. After arrival, they couldn't reach their local contacts because the phones were out. Their attention was geared towards arrests of leaders, press censorship and the communication blackout. Most have now left and moved on to other stories because they couldn't find any scoops. They were unable to meet any of the detained leaders. Some, Sujata Koirala, Minendra Rijal and Arjun Narsingh went to Hotel Yak and Yeti to offer interviews.
