Tibetan exiles in India turned back from Chinese embassy

NEW DELHI (AP) -- About 100 Tibetan exiles trying to break through a security cordon around New Delhi's Chinese embassy have been pushed back by Indian police.

About two dozen protesters were arrested and taken away in police vans. Another 50 were forced back on to the buses in which they had arrived on Wednesday.

It was not immediately clear whether they were being arrested or detained.

Police say India is preparing for the Beijing Olympic torch run on Thursday with more than 5,000 policemen already out in force to avoid disruptions similar to those in London and Paris.
