Trouble in Tibet

Trouble in TibetA week of violence and protest has erupted in Chinese occupied Tibet when Buddhist monks peacefully demonstrated to mark the anniversary of a failed 1959 uprising against China. The Dalai Lama has said he would step down as leader of Tibet’s government-in-exile if his supporters do not stop the protests that have left up to 100 dead in Tibet.
