Police detained 150 Tibetans who held a protest on Sunday near the Chinese Embassy visa office in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu.

The protesters, who were mostly Buddhist monks and nuns, were demanding the end of Chinese rule in Tibet.

"Free Tibet! We want freedom," they chanted before police blocked their march to the embassy's visa office and took them away in open trucks and vans to several detention centers in Kathmandu.
