October 28, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Two people have been executed for their roles in deadly protests last year in Tibet, the first known executions for the violence, an overseas monitoring group said. China confirmed the executions but gave no details.

Lobsang Gyaltsen and Loyak, who goes by one name, were sentenced in April on charges relating to "starting fatal fires," according to the Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet.

The group said the two were executed in Tibet's capital, Lhasa, but did not say when.
