Thousands of Tibetans gather across Tibet to mark prayer festival; lockdown of TAR to foreign tourists

Last week, Tibetans across Tibet marked the last day of an important religious festival, gathering in the thousands at monasteries despite the deployment of large numbers of uniformed and plainclothes paramilitary police.
