Kathmandu, October 20 - A 16 year old girl from the same village of the 17 year old nun who died on Nangpa La pass left the Tibetan Refugee Transit Center in Nepal for India to seek an audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and education along with her 40 fellow companions from different parts of Tibet.

41 of them survived the Nangpa La shooting by Chinese soldiers on 30th September where one nun was killed. They arrived at the Tibetan Refugee Transit Center in Kathmandu on 10th October and were well taken care of at the Center with good food and health care. No one who escape the shooting had any severe illness or problem of frostbites that usually people coming over Nangpa La suffer.

Out of the total 77 people who tried to excape including two guides, 43 inlcuding the guides arrived in Nepal, one died and one was injured and all other 32 have been alledgely arrested by Chinese soldiers and are awaiting punishment. Xinhua new later also reported that another person also died of high altitue sickness. We are not sure about about the authencity of the news because we dont usually hear about Tibetans dying of high altitude.
