(TibetanReview.net, May13, 2015) – Many Tibetans have been rendered homeless in Chabcha (Chinese: Gonghe) County of Tsolho (Hainan) Prefecture, Qinghai Province, after Chinese authorities began demolishing their homes from May 5, saying they were unauthorized and spoiled the place’s scenic beauty, reported Radio Free Asia (Washington) May 11. It said six Tibetans were held for protesting the demolition.

The Tibetan homes were reported to be metallic sheet shelters built near the shores of the Qinghai Lake near a scenic spot. The demolished homes were reported to have been built in the townships of Trilnak, Tanak, Chang Shey and Rigmon.

Four Tibetans were reported to have been held at the beginning of the demolition on May 5 at a place called Gonpo Dong in Tanak Township. They have been named as Lubum Gyal, his sons Tsewang Gyal and Rinchen Dorje, and his son-in-law Yeshe Dorje. Besides, Gyablung Village chief Tashi Gyal and a young man named Yangchuk Gyal were held after being summoned to the local police station early next morning.

The authorities were also reported to have issued an order on May 7, forbidding the building of houses along the lake or in any nearby nomadic areas. The homes of those who had bribed officials were said to have been spared.
