Reports of sporadic unrest from Tibet have reached outside from time to time, despite the complete lockdown since March this year - the latest being the unrest in the Karze area of eastern Tibet. Tibetan nuns have taken a leading role and at least six more separate protests since more than 50 nuns were detained after a bold demonstration on May 14. More than 80 nuns have now been detained in the unrest in Kardze, whichthat has continued despite the severe 'anti-separatist' crackdown in Tibetan areas that has been upheld even since the earthquake struck Sichuan on May 12
