*9 April 2008*

*Sangchu (Ch: Xiahe) County, Kanlho "Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture,"
Gansu province- /Foreign journalists witness the real situation in Tibet/*

Around 12:30pm, fifteen monks from Ladrang Tashi-Khil monastery staged a
protest in front of the government-controlled media tour. The monks
approached the journalists carrying the banned Tibetan flag and banners
reading "we have no freedom of speech," and also voiced their support
for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The monks shouted in Chinese, "We want
more freedom, more human rights and we want to see the return of His
Holiness the Dalai Lama." "Many monks have been arrested." Currently, it
cannot be confirmed if any of the monks from Ladrang Tashi-Khil
monastery were arrested during this incident.

failure as Tibetans are strictly opposed to the move.
