Kathmandu (Nepal), June 16 -- Chinese cavalry
units penetrated Nepal’s north border in pursuit
of Tibetan guerrilla fighters seeking temporary
refuge in Nepal, Mr Keshavlal Shrista, the
President of the Nepal National Committee of the
Afro-Asian Council, said here yesterday.

He said a large number of the Tibetan guerrillas
had reached the Nepalese border. They said they
would return to Tibet after a brief stay.

These guerrillas said there was fierce fighting
in Tibet and both sides had suffered heavy
casualties. The Chinese dead were being carried
away in five-ton trucks it was reported.

Fighting was reported at Garojong, in Western
Tibet, where the women were joining their menfolk
in fighting the Chinese. Many of the wounded were
removed to Shigatse, Gyantse, and Ulhasa, the reports said.
