Baton-wielding riot police Tuesday hauled Tibetan protesters into waiting buses after they tried to storm the Chinese embassy in New Delhi on the anniversary of the 1959 uprising against Beijing's rule.Nearly all of the crowd of some 100 demonstrators, including women activists, have been detained, police said.When China's military pushed into Tibet in 1959, tens of thousands of people including their spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled to India.Tibetans in Kathmandu have traditionally marked the anniversary with protests but community members said no demonstrations would be held this year due to growing pressure from Nepalese authorities.
