NEW DELHI: Tibet's spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Wednesday appealed
for international pressure on Beijing to halt what he alleged was a
mounting Chinese military crackdown in his homeland.

"Chinese authorities have deployed large contingents of troops in these
traditional Tibetan regions and have not only started to crack down
heavily on the Tibetans allegedly involved in the unrest, but also
sealed off the areas where protests have taken place," he said in a
statement.

The Dalai Lama asked "world leaders, parliamentarians, NGOs and (the)
public" to call "for an immediate end to the current crackdown, the
release of all those who have been arrested and detained, and the
provision of proper medical treatment."
