Beijing, Wed, 25 Jan 2012 ANI

Beijing, Jan 25 (ANI): Two more Tibetans in China's southwestern Sichuan province were killed when security forces opened fired on thousands of demonstrators.


The latest clash between Tibetans and Chinese security came on Tuesday in Seda county in Garze, an ethnically Tibetan part of Sichuan province.


According to earlier media reports, one man, named as Yonten, aged 49, was shot in the head, and over 30 other demonstrators were injured by gunfire.


Xinhua reported that the shooting started after monks and protesters in Luhuo rioted and attacked stores and a police station.


It added that "overseas forces" were now trying to distort the truth and "fabricate rumours" about what happened in this hugely isolated region, The Telegraph reports.


Tibetan parts of Sichuan have seen at least 16 Buddhist monks, nuns, and civilians set themselves on fire in the past year in protest at their living conditions.


The Tibetan government-in-exile, based in Dharamsala, said the latest protests, which coincided with the Chinese New Year national holiday, had been peaceful until the police opened fire.


According to the report, the Tibetan prime minister-in-exile, Lobsang Sangay, has asked the international community to intervene to stop the bloodshed. (ANI)
