Tibetan government in exile expresses grief over Tibet mudslide
Phayul[Monday, August 09, 2010 18:01]
Dharamsala, August 9 - The Tibetan government in exile today expressed its sadness over the loss of lives and damage to property caused by massive landslides in Drugchu County in the traditional Tibetan province of Amdo (Ch. Zhuoqu County, Gannan prefecture, Gansu province).

Latest figures put the death toll in Sunday's landslide at 127 with at least 1300 people still missing.

"The Kashag offers its deep condolence to the surviving relatives and pray for their quick emotional and physical recovery both in terms of health and reconstruction," Kashag's (Tibetan cabinet) statement posted on the official website of the Tibetan government based here said.

A special prayer session for the victims and families of those affected will be held tomorrow at Tsuglagkhang temple, and "will be attended by entire staff of the Central Tibetan Administration."

"The local Tibetans in the area said the disaster was caused by rampant mining and deforestation, and damming of Drugchu river as well as the unprecedented spell of heavy rain," the website said.

The Tibetan Parliament in exile also sent its condolences to the victims and families of those affected. The Tibetan Parliament expressed its condolences to "our brethren who lost their lives and those injured, and pray for the deceased to attain early rebirth in human realm.”
