More Tibetans killed today by Chinese security forces on second day of killing
24 January 2012 Tensions are escalating and spreading in Tibet. We have just confirmed that two Tibetans were shot dead in Serthar County today.
We can also confirm that two Tibetans were shot dead in neighbouring Draggo County yesterday. Chinese forces opened fire on a peaceful protest which began in response to the arbitrary arrests of up to 200 Tibetans in the area.
Free Tibet has the names of 36 other Tibetans shot and injured during this incident;12 of whom are said to be seriously wounded.
Chinese security forces have used lethal force against Tibetans during two separate incidents in only two days. We have grave concerns for the safety of Tibetans in the region. Please visit our website for updated information about the situation in Tibet.
Free Tibet has been constantly working to spread the word about what is happening right now inside Tibet. We have already secured coverage from the BBC, New York Times and the Financial Times, and many other international media outlets. -------------------
