Labrang (Amdo), March 14: In yet another fresh protest incident in Tibet, thousands of Tibetan monks and laypeople staged demonstration in the streets of Sangchu County, Kanlho "Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture" ("TAP"), Gansu Province, accoriding to a reliable source.

Phayul.com has obtained set of pictures taken through mobile phone that show the intensity of the demonstration in Labrang.

Around 50 monks from the Labrang Tashikyil Monastery began staging demonstration carrying the banned Tibetan national flag and shouting “Tibet Independence” slogans around 2:00pm today.

Some 600 more monks from the same monastery later joined the demonstration.

The number later swelled up to few thousands when general public continued to join the procession of monks and the protest became more intensive.

The source said police started to fire live ammunitions in the air and started to beat the demonstrators when the procession reached the Sangchu County Public Security Bureau headquarter.

“Public security and armed police began firing shots later as it (protest) became very
intensive. Whether it caused casualties is unclear,” the source said.

“Gradually the number increased and thousands of Tibetans gathered around in the main market. At the police station they shouted more loudly out of control, then the Chinese police started shooting among the protesters, as a result the mass scattered rapidly due to gunfire,” the source said.

The situation in Amdo is said to be extremely tense as unrest continues across Tibet. The public demonstration in Labrang has not entirely ceased at the time of filing this report.
