  • VOA Tibetan

Two Tibetans were shot by Chinese security services in a protest on Sunday, Tibet activists say.

The UK-based group Free Tibet said the Tibetans named Dawa and Druklo were shot outside the local police station in Khekor Township, Serthar County, Kandze prefecture (Chinese: Kege Township, Seda County, Garzi prefecture, Sichuan).

The shooting occurred as protesters shouted slogans demanding greater freedom for Tibet and the unconditional return of the Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in India.

Free Tibet said Dawa was shot in the leg, Druklo in his torso and that their condition and whereabouts are unknown.
