Dharamshala — Sources coming out of Tibet say another Tibetan Buddhist monk was detained by Chinese authorities in Ngaba County, eastern Tibet for staging peaceful protest against the Chinese government rule and shouting slogans calling for freedom in Tibet.

"Jampal Gyatso, aged about 21, took to the main street of Ngaba town, carrying a portrait of His Holiness the Dalai Lama," and shouted slogans calling for "freedom for Tibetans." Chinese authorities arrived at the scene within minutes and arrested him.

"Gyatso was arrested after he staged a solo demonstration against the Chinese government around 12:00 am on September 9," Ven Kanyag Tsering, a monk with close contacts in the Tibetan region, told the Tibet Post International (TPI).
