Tibetan activists are detained by Nepalese police personnel during their protest outside the United Nations office in Nepal on the third day of Tibetan New Year or "Losar" in Kathmandu February 24, 2012.About 20,000 Tibetans live in Nepal with valid refugee papers, although many are believed to be residing illegally. With a growing Chinese influence over Nepal, the Nepalese government stands strong against Tibetan exiles whose protests in support of their homeland have increased in recent years. Nepal ceased issuing refugee papers to Tibetans in 1989 and recognises Tibet to be a part of China. REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar (NEPAL - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW SOCIETY IMMIGRATION CIVIL UNREST)
