Kathmandu, May 6, 2008: Nepali police beat up pro-Tibet protesters in Kathmandu on May 5 and detained at least 125 people as demonstrators tried to storm the Chinese embassy demanding freedom for their Himalayan homeland.

The protesters were dragged into waiting police vehicles before driving away to detention centres. Exiled Tibetans have been protesting regularly ever since deadly riots broke out in the Tibetan capital Lhasa in March, followed by demonstrations in other Tibetan areas of China.
