China: Tibetan Writer's Trial Postponed

The trial of a Tibetan writer who has criticized
Chinese policies in Tibet in a recent book may be
postponed, according to the International
Campaign for Tibet, an advocacy group.

The group said in a statement on Thursday that it
was unclear whether a postponement of the trial
for the writer, whose name is Tragyal, would
suggest that the authorities were questioning the
premise of the trial or whether they were looking for more evidence.

Mr. Tragyal was detained in April in Xining,
after the publication of his book, "The Line between Sky and Earth."
