Nepal bans Tibetan rallies on Dalai Lama birthday
Kathmandu: Nepalese authorities are preventing exiled Tibetans from celebrating their spiritual leader Dalai Lama`s birthday over concerns that gatherings will turn anti-Chinese.
Hundreds of riot police have blocked the Tibetans from entering the Namgyal school in northern edge of Kathmandu where the celebrations were planned.
Only students wearing school uniforms were allowed inside the compound while the Tibetans including many monks and nuns were stopped.
The government issued a warning on Wednesday that all public celebrations are banned and police will not allow anti-Chinese protests.
The Dalai Lama will spend his 76th birthday in the US.
