Dozens of Tibetan Protesters Detained in Nepal བོད་སྐད།

Police in Nepal have arrested at least 600 Tibetan exiles protesting against China.

The demonstrators were rounded up outside the Chinese embassy in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, Thursday -- in the latest of almost daily anti-China protests in the Himalayan nation.

Police usually release Tibetan exile protesters later in the day.

Tibetan exiles have been demonstrating since March when deadly clashes broke out between protesters and Chinese authorities in their homeland, Tibet.

Nepal, which regards Tibet as part of China, is home to some 20-thousand Tibetan refugees.
