Nepal Police Break Up Tibetan Protest བོད་སྐད།


Police in Nepal armed with batons dispersed a protest Tuesday by Tibetan refugees and monks in front of the Chinese Embassy.

Nepal has seen almost daily anti-China protests since March 10th when demonstrations began in Tibet's capital, Lhasa. At least 400 protesters were detained in Nepal Monday.

Police in Katmandu said more than 70 protesters were loaded into trucks and vans today and sent to detention centers.

The U.N. human rights office in Nepal has said it is deeply concerned at the arbitrary arrests and detentions.

Nepal's border with China in the Himalayas is a key route for Tibetans fleeing Chinese rule in the region.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
