T V Jul 11-Clashes at Tibet rally in Nepal

Jul 11 - Tibetan refugees in Nepal have clashed with police following pro-Tibet independence demonstrations in Kathmandu.

More than 20,000 Tibetans live in Nepal since fleeing their homeland after a failed 1959 uprising against Chinese rule. Nepal considers Tibet part of China, a key aid donor, and does not allow anti-China activities. However, exiles have been staging regular protests since the Chinese crackdown in Tibet in March.
