Nepalese Police Detain 300 Tibetan Protesters བོད་སྐད།


Police in Nepal have detained around 300 Tibetan exiles, after some of the demonstrators tried to storm a Chinese embassy building in Kathmandu.

A few of the anti-China protesters managed to break through a police cordon Friday and reach the gates of the fortified complex before being arrested.

Tibetan exiles have been holding demonstrations against China since March, when deadly clashes broke out between protesters and Chinese authorities in Tibet.

Nepal is home to some 20-thousand Tibetan refugees.
