India Police Detains Tibetans protesting over Hu's visit


Groups of Tibetans held scattered protests in New Delhi for a second day Tuesday, Indian police have detained 24 Tibetans protesting against the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao. They are demanding independence or autonomy for Chinese-controlled Tibet.

Police arrested at least four of the protesters after they tried to reach the building where Chinese President Hu Jintao was meeting the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Monday four Tibetans shouting anti-China slogans jumped in front of Hu's motorcade as he arrived from the airport.

Indian authorities asked Tibetans to leave the center of New Delhi and told students to stay inside their dormitories during Mr. Hu's visit. Police have vowed to move against those who disobey the order.
