shooting follow-up October 13, 2006

Posted by amerz in Uncategorized.

A friend who works at Human Rights in China sent me their press release about the shooting I mentioned in my last post, including the links below. The seventeen-year-old Tibetan nun killed was named Kelsang Namtso, from Nagchu prefecture in central Tibet.

For additional information, and a truly chilling picture taken by one of the witnesses, see:

International Campaign for Tibet , “Tibetan nun shot dead; other Tibetans feared killed on way to Nepal ,” October 5, 2006, available at http://www.savetibet.org/news/newsitem.php?id=1036.
