New Delhi: About a dozen Tibetans, including
women, on Thursday staged a protest outside the Hyderabad House here
objecting to the border talks between India and China claiming
that Beijing cannot discuss the issue before giving freedom to
Tibet.

Draped in Tibetan flags and carrying anti-China placards,
the protesters assembled in front of the Hyderabad House near
India Gate in the morning where External Affairs Minister S M
Krishna was holding bilateral talks with his Chinese
counterpart Yang Jiechi.

Anticipating protests, a number of police personnel were
deployed in the area and they immediately detained the
demonstrators who were shouting slogans demanding freedom for
Tibet.

"We have detained the protesters, including women. We
have taken them to a nearby police station," a senior police
official said.

One of the protesters said China cannot discuss the issue
before giving freedom to Tibet. "It is ridiculous for China to
have talks with India before giving us freedom," he said.
