Tibetan separatists clashed with Nepali police

KATHMANDU, March 10, 2009 -- Around 50 Tibetan separatists on Tuesday briefly clashed with Nepali police in the east of Nepali capital Kathmandu and some of them were briefly detained.

Hundreds of Tibetans joined a mass prayer at the Samten Ling monastery at Boudha, in the east of Kathmandu, on Tuesday morning.

After the prayer was over, around 50 Tibetans clashed with police who were safeguarding security there.

The Tibetan separatists chanted the so-called "Tibet Independence" slogans, initiating clashes with Nepali police.

Local news website Myrepublica quoted Boudha's police chief, Deputy Superintendent Om Rana, as saying Tuesday noon, "The situation is fully under control now."

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the democratic reform in Tibet.

Fifty years ago, the central government of China foiled the armed rebellion started on March 10 by the Dalai Lama and his supporters to block the reform of the feudal serfdom in Tibet and split the region from China. On March 28, 1959, a new local Tibetan government was formed, freeing millions of Tibetan serfs and slaves, who accounted for more than 90 percent of the then population in the region.

The Dalai Lama and his followers, since their exile, have continued to pursue either disguised or undisguised activities to separate Tibet from China and restore feudal serfdom in the region.

On March 14 last year, followers of the Dalai Lama staged riotsin Lasha to put pressure on the central government. Their violence resulted in 18 deaths of civilians and huge loss of properties.
