Kathmandu, Nepal (AHN) - At least 185 more Tibetan protesters were
arrested on Sunday while they prepared to stage a demonstration
outside a Chinese embassy building in Kathmandu, police and witnesses said.

The protesters, half of them women, were arrested during a rally in
front of the Chinese embassy's visa office in the capital, Katmandu,
a police official reportedly said.

More than 450 Tibetan protesters were arrested on Saturday while they
staged a pro-Tibet protest in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu.

The authorities concerned reportedly said they will not allow
protests against any friendly countries, including close door
neighboring China.

The Tibetans have been staging demonstrations in Nepal's capital
since March 10, 2008 to oppose the crackdown by the Chinese military in Tibet.

They suspended their protests after a catastrophic earthquake hit
China on May 12, 2008 leaving about 70,000 people dead, 18,000
missing and 15 million more homeless.

But this week they resumed their protests in the South Asian country.
