Group tallies Tibet's missing

June 19, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

More than 1,000 protesters detained during anti-government riots in the Chinese region of Tibet three months ago have not been accounted for, a human rights group said.

Amnesty International said a quarter of about 4,000 people detained by Chinese police during the riots in March are unaccounted for. The others have either been released or placed under formal arrest.

"There is very little information coming out of Tibet, but the information we have paints a dire picture of arbitrary detentions and abuse of detainees," said Amnesty's Asia-Pacific director, Sam Zarifi.
