Violence in Nepal March 26, 2008

Posted by Philip Ryan in Dalai Lama, News, Tibet.

As Konchog pointed out a few posts back, violence continues in Nepal, with police cracking down hard on protesters. Many people have been injured and hundreds arrested so far. The U.N. has expressed concern over Nepal’s actions. Nepal is troubled. At least one person has been killed in the escalating pre-election violence as well, the tension over which may partially explain the brutal repression of the Tibet protests.

Konchog also has some solid links for you all to chew on: Students for a Free Tibet has a petition to keep the Olympic torch out of Tibet, thank you very much, and Chinese intellectuals write a courageous open letter to the government.

UPDATE: Then again, the New York Times on Nepal: As turmoil subsides, tourism surges.
