180 Tibetan exiles arrested by Nepalese authorities

Published 08/06/2008

Over 180 Tibetan exiles have been arrested by Nepalese authorities for protesting against China's crackdown in their homeland.

The demonstrators were detained during a rally in front of the Chinese Embassy's visa office in Kathmandu.

Tibetans in Nepal began protests against China in March but temporarily halted their rallies last month after the major earthquake in China.

The protests resumed last week.
