A few more articles coming out detailing the ongoing protests in Tibet. Things seem to have turned somewhat violent in Lhasa, after monks began a non-violent protest on Tibetan Uprising Day to express their opposition to religious restrictions in Tibet. Two interesting bits from the New York Times article on the topic:
1) Claims that the violence escalated after Chinese security forces attacked protesting monks- triggering a response from other Tibetans. The violence against the monks of Burma triggered similar results.
2) The New York Times seems to be playing up the ethnic tensions aspect of the violence. Most of their quoted sources come from Chinese living in Tibet, and mention violence against Chinese in Lhasa and destruction of Chinese shops and homes. There’s much less attention given to this angle in the BBV report.
