Around 20 Tibetans protesters were released from jail after local people requested that they be let go. A latest source stated that the monks and lay people were arrested in Thanggan township, Bha County, Amdo (Qinghai province), to which they had marched 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Karmo monastery, carrying banners, shouting slogans calling for a free Tibet and praying for the long life of the Dalai Lama, at around 7.30am on Sunday, November 11.

Three days earlier a number of elderly Tibetans are reported to have wept and fainted with emotion during a gathering of around 100 monks and local people at Gaden Choepel Ling monastery, Kangtsa, Amdo.

The congregation had been offering butter lamps whilst praying for the long life of the Dalai Lama, and for those who have given their lives for the Tibetan cause, including the 72 Tibetans who have self-immolated protesting Chinese rule in their country since March, 2011.
