More Arrests in Tibetan Bomb Case - 2003-01-23


Ten more Tietbans are reported to have been arrested in connection with a bombing campaign in south west China, which saw two other Tibetans sentenced to death last month. Amnesty International Says ten Tibetans were detained in connection with the case against Tenzin Deleg Rinpoche and Lobsang Thondup. Five of them have since been released, reportedly after being tortured or ill-treated indentation, but five others are believed to remain in custody. Chinese officials confirmed the prison sentences and also said that seven other Tietbans have been detained in the controversial case.
