Dharamsala/New Delhi, Dec 3 : Tibetans-in-exile in Dharamsala held a candlelight vigil as a mark of protest against last week's terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

The procession began from a monastery in the lower part of the city and ended at the Martyrs' Memorial.

People of all ages, with a candle in their hands participated in the protest and raised slogans to vent their ire against terrorism.

"We came here to express solidarity and to show courage to the people who live behind that is the families of victims of blasts," said Tenzin Dhondup, a Buddhist monk.
