Police Detain Tibetan Exiles བོད་སྐད།


Tibetan exiles were detained Friday as they staged an anti-China demonstration in front of a United Nations office in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, police said.

The protesters shouted 'Free Tibet' and 'We want Justice' as they were dragged into waiting police vans and driven to a nearby police station.

'We have rounded up 25 Tibetans as they protested in the restricted zone,' police officer Ramesh Thapa told AFP.

'They will probably be freed by evening time,' he said.

Authorities in Nepal have stepped up security around the United Nations office and Chinese embassy building to prevent anti-China demonstrations this year.

Information for this report was provided by AFP.
