Tibetan refugees in Nepal have clashed with police following
pro-Tibet independence demonstrations in Kathmandu.

More than 20,000 Tibetans live in Nepal since fleeing their homeland
after a failed 1959 uprising against Chinese rule. Nepal considers
Tibet part of China, a key aid donor, and does not allow anti-China
activities. However, exiles have been staging regular protests since
the Chinese crackdown in Tibet in March.
