Sources coming out of Tibet say a Tibetan monk was reportedly arrested by Chinese authorities in Ngaba County following a peaceful protest against the Chinese government rule.

The monk, Lobsang Kalsang, 19-year-old from Kirti Monastery, marched into the streets of Ngaba County of Amdo, north-eastern Tibet, calling for "freedon for Tibetans", "the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet" and raised slogans for his long life.

"The monk staged a lone protest around 3:4 pm (local time) on August 7 on the County’s main street. His conditions and whereabouts remain," Ven Kanyak Tsering, from India based Kirti Monastery told The Tibet Post International.
