(dpa) - Tibetan exiles in Nepal Sunday resumed their anti-China protests that were suspended in view of Nepalese elections.
A group of about 100 exiles staged a hunger strike to show solidarity with the people in Tibet.
"The hunger strike will continue for 24 hours on Sunday and a new group will take their position on Monday," a protest organizer said on condition of anonymity.
"We are showing our solidarity with the people in Lhasa and we will continue our protests until our demands for autonomy and human rights in Tibet are met," he said.
Some of the protestors had the Tibetan national flag painted on their faces while others prayed for human rights in Tibet.
The Tibetan exiles protests that began in Nepal March 10 demonstrations were often broken up by Nepalese police using force which drew international condemnation.
The government has repeatedly said it will not allow anti-China activities.
