(TibetanReview.net, Aug21, 2015) – A Tibetan youth was detained by Chinese police in Lithang (Chinese: Litang) County of Karze Prefecture, Sichuan Province, on Aug 18 only moments after he carried out a lone protest, reported Radio Free Asia (Washington) Aug 19, citing an exile Tibetan monk with local contacts.

The young man, whose name and other details remain to be ascertained, staged the protest on the county’s public square. He was reported to have carried a portrait of Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, while calling for his return and shouting ‘Free Tibet’ slogans as well.

As the protest took place near a Chinese police post on the White Crane Square of the Lithang county seat, the man was almost immediately seized and taken away, bundled into a small black car, the report said. Although only few Tibetans witnessed the incident, it later became widely known in the locality, the report added.
