25 february 2012 003Kathmandu: - Thirteen Tibetan exiles were arrested at The United Nations building in Kathmandu.

They were appealing to The U.N. to send an investigatory committee into Tibet to explore Chinese human rights abuses.

"This protest is intended to urge The U.N. to pressure the Chinese authorities to stop killing Tibetan protesters," the exiles stated.

According to government statistics, about 20,000 Tibetan refugees live in Nepal. However, thousands more are believed to live in the country as undocumented migrants.

As of late, Nepal has come under increasing pressure from China to crush anti-China or pro-Tibet activities.
