Hundreds of members of Nepal's ethnic minorities blocked roads in the capital on Sunday in renewed protests calling for changes to the Himalayan nation's controversial new constitution.

Demonstrators carrying flags and chanting slogans pushed up against a police cordon in Kathmandu's administrative centre in protests against the charter, which they say leaves them politically marginalised.

"The government is not serious about our demands and is moving forward independently, even reversing the agreements we have reached in the past," said Upendra Yadav, chairman of a regional party representing the Madhesi community.

No injuries were reported in the protests, which restarted in the capital on Sunday in a fresh push to amend the constitution adopted last September.

More than 50 people were killed in previous clashes between police and opponents of the charter.
