Two Norwegian mountaineers witness the shooting
Norwegian Tibet Comittee[Thursday, October 19, 2006 06:41]
Norwegian TV 2 carried a news report in prime time news yesterday on shooting at Nangpa la pass. This is a follow up to the previous coverage of the same incident when the Channel showed the video footage of the shootings by the Chinese guard.

Yesterday prime time news on TV interviewed the Norwegian climber followed by a short interview of His Holiness and Norwegian Tibet Committees chairwomen Mrs. Chungdak Koren. The news report also included footage from 1959 crackdown in Tibet.

Norwegian Tibet Committee has spoken with the climbers and was told that out of 6 Norwegian members of expedition two of them were at the base Camp during the shooting. The film on shooting is now on many Norwegian NGOs website.

Norwegian Tibet Committee and Tibetan community will hold Vigil on 23 October "Light a candle for nun Kelsang Namtso and others killed by Chinese soldier" and there will be appeal from Parliamentarian and Amnesty international Norway.

Full text of news and interview with climber:

When Chinese border guards shot and killed a nun on her way to the land of Dalai Lama, Geir Lysfjord, aged 59, saw the whole incident from nearby. Together with the mountaineer Jan Arve Andresen, the Norwegian was a witness to the bloody drama that unfolded on 30 September this year.

A few hours after the shooting that left dead bodies on the glacier, 25 Chinese soldiers entered the base camp armed with automatic weapons, says Lysfjord.

Wanted to bury the bodies

The following day they returned, this time with ten Chinese police officers.

They went out to the dead bodies on the glacier. As far as I could see they tried to bury the bodies, but they failed, says Lysfjord to TV 2 News.

Took 11 children

The next day the bodies were removed. At the same time the base camp was searched in pursuit of more refugees.

11 children were found and taken away by the police in full public view.

The Norwegian Tibet Committee condemns the attack on the Tibetan refugees.

In self defense

After the killing, the Chinese authorities said that the border guards had shot in self defense when they were attacked.

This claim is in stark contrast to video footage of the incident and the observations of the Norwegian mountaineers.
