Unrest possible in Tibet, warns Dalai Lama
Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama warned yesterday that the situation in his homeland was "very tense" and that an uprising was possible.
"Today there is too much anger. (The) situation is very tense," he said during a visit to the western German city of Baden Baden. "At any moment, an outburst could happen.
"This is my worry because with more uprising, there will be more crackdown," he continued. "Things are very sad.
"As soon as people are arrested, they use torture, and sometimes they kill them. Since public execution is difficult, they use torture when Tibetans are detained."
"In many places, schools are closed, especially private funded schools."
