Bangalore, Oct 26 (PTI) -- As Chinese Foreign
Minister Yang Jeichi arrived here today to take
part in tomorrow's India-Russia-China (RIC)
trilateral meeting, a group of Tibetan refugees
staged a silent protest opposing the visit.

The Tibetans, who held the protest in Ejipura
area, which has a small presence of their
community members, demanded that no Chinese
dignitary be allowed to step into India until
China frees Tibet from its control.

The protestors held placards demanding that human
rights violations in Tibet be looked into before dispersing.
