KATHMANDU -- Nepali police broke up a protest by Tibetan exiles in
Kathmandu on Saturday and detained 182 people for organizing
anti-China demonstrations.

Protesters demanding a "free Tibet" came in minibuses, some of which
were also seized. All the detained protesters will be freed later on
Saturday, police said.

More than 20,000 Tibetans now live in exile in neighbouring Nepal
following a failed uprising against Chinese rule in the region in 1959.

They have been protesting almost every day since the Chinese
crackdown in Tibet in March.
