The article

Chinese leaders have accused the Dalai Lama of organizing the recent
riots in Tibet and one called him a monster. Zhang Qingli, the Communist
Party Secretary in Tibet, said on Wednesday: "The Dalai Lama is a wolf
wrapped in robes, a monster with a human face and an animal's heart." He
said that it was important to stop the rioting in Lhassa because it
affected the stability of the whole of China. A day earlier, China's
premier Wen Jiabao blamed the Dalai Lama for orchestrating the riots and
said his followers were trying to "incite sabotage" of the Beijing
Olympics. The Dalai Lama rejected all accusations and pleaded with
Tibetans not to use violence. He even warned that he would quit his post
if the unrest increased. "If things become out of control then my only
option is to completely resign," he said. He invited China to
investigate his words and actions thoroughly.
