Despite over 20,000 troops, two monks held after staging lone protests in Lithang county on Mar 10

(TibetanReview.net, Mar 16, 2009) — Two monks, believed to belong to Lithang Monastery, staged lone protests on Mar 10, the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising, in Lithang county of Sichuan Province despite the fact that China had deployed more than 20,000 troops across the county, reported the exile Tibetan government’s Tibet.net Mar 14.

The report said that a monk, whose identity remained to be established, staged a protest at around 11 am. When troops tried to arrest him, a group of Tibetans rushed to rescue him. However, the monk’s fate remains unknown.

Later in the afternoon, another monk, named Lobsang Wanchuk, 29, raised slogans and was immediately arrested. He originally belongs to neighbouring Bathang county.

The report did not say where exactly the two monks staged their protest.
