China: 2 Protests by Students in Tibetan Areas

Groups of students in two Tibetan areas of Gansu Province, in western China, have held separate protests after Chinese security forces imposed lockdowns at boarding schools before the anniversaries of previous Tibetan uprisings, according to a report by the International Campaign for Tibet, an advocacy group. The report, based on information obtained by Tibetans in exile with ties to people in Gansu, was similar to an earlier report of the protests by Radio Free Asia.
