Dharamsala, February 27: Chinese authorities in Rebkong, in Tibet’s Amdo Province, are said to have taken secret decision at a high-level meeting to re-arrest Tibetans involved in the last week’s clash with Chinese police.
A reliable source having the knowledge of the latest developments in Rebkong has confirmed that the authorities of the area had held a closed-door meeting to decide on the future course of action against those Tibetans involved in the protest.
The source also confirmed that the authorities have now reached their decision to arrest again many of those initially released after sensing massive demonstration by Tibetans.
On February 21, some 200 Tibetans, mostly monks were arrested after a clash between Tibetans and Chinese police during the Great Prayer festival.

During the clash, Tibetans reportedly raised slogans for the independence of Tibet and prayed for the Long Life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
