Tibetan Refugees Shot By Chinese Soldiers

From Belfast Telegraph:

China tries to gag climbers who saw Tibet killings

Chinese diplomats in the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu are tracking down and trying to silence hundreds of Western climbers and Sherpas who witnessed the killing of Tibetan refugees on the Nangpa La mountain pass last week.

This ominous development comes as fears grow for the safety of a group of Tibetan children, aged between six and 10, who were marched away after at least two refugees including a nun, were shot dead.


An American climber, who asked not to be identified, told of his revulsion at the failure of other climbers to speak out.

“Did it make anyone turn away and go home? Not one,” he said. “People are climbing right in front of you to escape persecution while you are trying to climb a mountain. It’s insane.”
