Kathmandu, June 8 (Xinhua) Nepal’s police Saturday detained more than 450 Tibetan protestors who have resumed anti-China demonstrations in the capital. “At least 450 Tibetans were held while heading toward the Chinese embassy,” said city’s police chief Sarbendra Khanal.

The demonstrators shouted anti-China slogans and appealed to the police not to intervene in their demonstration.
