    BEIJING (AP) — A U.S.-based human rights group says Chinese authorities have detained hundreds of Tibetans who went to India to receive religious instruction from the Dalai Lama.

    Human Rights Watch says in an online statement it is the first time since the late 1970s that Chinese authorities have detained large numbers of ordinary Tibetans and forced them into re-education classes. Tibetan monks and nuns are routinely made to attend patriotic education classes.

    The statement posted Thursday says the exact number of those detained is unclear, but believed to be several hundred.

    China vilifies the Dalai Lama and accuses him of a campaign to split the Himalayan region from the rest of China. The Dalai Lama says he is only seeking increased autonomy for Tibet.

    China's Crackdown on Tibetan Activists Leads to Writer's Arrest

    Authorities in Tibetan regions of southwestern China are continuing a recent crackdown against anti-Chinese government activists ahead of this week's celebration of the Tibetan New Year and in advance of the March anniversary of the Dalai Lama's flight into exile.

    News reports from Sichuan province say a Tibetan writer, identified as Gangkye Drubpa Kyab, 33, has been detained. The reports say he was seized from his home in Seda county this past Wednesday and has not been released.

    His detention follows a recent series of self-immolatrions including that of a Tibetan monk who set himself on fire in Qinghai province on Saturday to protest the presence of Chinese security forces in his Bongtak monastery. Two teenaged Tibetans, a nun and a monk, killed themselves earlier this month.

    On Friday, China detained several hundred Tibetans as they returned to China from attending teaching lessons in India with the Dalai Lama.

    The Chinese government is blaming overseas organizations, including the London-based Free Tibet movement, of fomenting the unrest.

    Over the past year more than 20 Tibetans, most of them monks, have set themselves on fire to focus attention on what they see as Chinese repression of religious freedom and controls on Buddhist monasteries. There have been at least a dozen deaths.

    Now Nepal its sucking on China

    Detained Tibetans stage hunger strike in Nepal

    By Gopal Sharma

    KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Thirteen Tibetans, detained last week for protesting against China in front of the United Nations office in Nepal, started an indefinite hunger strike on Monday to press for their release, the president of the Tibetan Youth Congress in Nepal said.

    The activists, including two women, were demanding U.N. intervention in their homeland after a series of self-immolations against Chinese rule there.

    Tsewang Dolma quoted the protesters as saying the detentions, since Friday, were a violation of human rights.

    "The hunger strike is to demand their release," she said.

    Nepal is home to 20,000 Tibetans who have been living there since fleeing with the Dalai Lama in 1959.

    Tibetans in Nepal have been organising protests against China, showing solidarity with those who have self-immolated in recent months.

    In the past, most protesters were released shortly after being arrested during their protests in the Nepali capital.

    Human rights groups working for the Tibetan cause say Nepal was under pressure from China to crackdown on the activities of Tibetan exiles.

    Kathmandu considers Tibet as part of China, impoverished Nepal's key trade partner and a major aid donor to its economic development.

    At least 16 Tibetans are believed to have died after setting themselves on fire in protest since March, most of them Buddhist monks in Tibetan parts of Sichuan and Gansu provinces, next to what China calls the Tibet Autonomous Region.

    In November last year, one Tibetan poured kerosene on his body and set himself on fire but was quickly overpowered by locals at a Buddhist shrine on the outskirts of Kathmandu.

    An investigation shall be made into Un-China activities of those Tibetan "exiles" and more pressure on Kathmandu to hand them over. Did they go through proper formalities to cross the border to an enemy state India and why came back? And what "religious instructions" did they receive? Under no 'religious' disguise shall they be allowed to undermine China's security.

    Why try to keep them in China?

    We should give every tibeten who wants to unify with their relatives in india a one-way ticket: good bye and don't come back.

    Since they believe religion is more valuable than economic benefits, why bother to waste money on them.

    If india wants them, just let india feed them.

    Why should Tibetans leave their land?? Maybe being independent is more important than
    the scraps the communist government provides to Tibet and East Turkmenistan.

    Because...now they are a part of China. And we are not going to give these 2 areas away. So, either suck it up or leave it.
