Scores of Tibetan protestors broke into the Chinese Embassy in New Delhi on Friday afternoon, agitating against the crackdown on the pro-independence movement in Lhasa by China.
The protestors, who posed as students to gain entry into the heavily guarded Chinese embassy, arrived in a tourist bus.
Once inside, they waved Tibetan flags and shouted slogans against the Chinese government.
The Delhi police managed to round up the protestors without using force and later took them to the Chanakyapuri police station.
"The protest was a manifestation of the fraustration of the Tibetan people, who have been denied freedom. It was a protest against the violence unleashed by the Chinese authorities in Tibet," Dhondup Dorji, vice president of the Tibetan Youth Congress, told rediff.com.
