Today in Tibet:
Nepalese police detained more than 100 Tibetan exiles on Tuesday who had gathered to pray for nine Tibetans who set themselves on fire in protest against Chinese rule. A group of Tibetans including 150 monks were holding a prayer meeting on the outskirts of Katmandu in honor of the monks, former monks and a nun who have self-immolated since March in a restive Tibetan area of western China that has been under martial law-type police controls. Aged in their late teens and twenties, at least five died of their injuries, while the condition of the other four is not known.
