Dozens of Tibetan protesters have been arrested in Nepal as they held a prayer meeting.

They had gathered to express their support for nine Tibetans who had set themselves on fire this year in protest against Chinese rule of Tibet.

Five of those acts of self-immolation took place at a monastery in China's Sichuan province.
