Hundreds in Delhi call for Tibet freedom
New Delhi - Hundreds of Tibetan activists have marched through the streets of New Delhi, calling for freedom for their homeland and decrying Chinese rule.
Some protesters held photos of the Dalai Lama, while others carried portraits of monks and nuns who have set themselves on fire over the last year in ethnic Tibetan areas of China's Sichuan province.
Before setting themselves on fire, many had chanted for Tibetan freedom and the return of the Dalai Lama. Sichuan has also seen a series of recent clashes between Tibetans and China's forces.
The Tibetan government-in-exile, which is based in north India, had earlier called for a series of vigils to be held on Wednesday.
