DHARAMSHALA, September 27: A mob of around twenty people disrupted the ongoing Tibet Film Festival in Hong Kong on Friday and even manhandled the organizers.

The Tibet Film Festival which opened yesterday at the Regal Riverside Hotel in Hong Kong will be screening films on Tibet including ‘The girl from China’ by Delhi based Tibetan filmmaker Sonam Tseten.

One of the organizers was slapped when they tried to stop the mob from attacking Mr. Tashi, the president of Taiwan Tibetan Welfare Association.

“These people are simply local goons on the payroll of Chinese government,” said Tashi.

Order was restored after the organizers called the cops.

“The goons left only after threatening to come back again,” Tashi said.

The three-day event organized by the Hong Kong Tibet Culture Centre also features an exhibition on the series of self-immolation protests in Tibet.
