Beijing is mobilising troops and the paramilitary across the Tibetan plateau toWhoa, what?
crush anti-Chinese sentiment, sending in huge reinforcements towards Lhasa and
deploying soldiers around many villages as unrest flares in far-flung corners.
In the capital, Lhasa —where last Friday Tibetans vented their pent-up anger
against Beijing by attacking and stabbing ethnic Han Chinese and burning shops
and offices — paramilitary People’s Armed Police and People’s Liberation Army
soldiers were checking the papers of anyone moving around the city.
