Dharamshala: - Local sources revealed that Jampa Choephel, the uncle of Phakpa Gyaltsen, who had jumped to death earlier this month in order to protest against Chinese mining works in the Tibetan county, has been detained by Chinese authorities.

Choephel was taken into custody on May 12 by police in Chamdo (in Chinese, Changdu, prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region), five days after his nephew committed suicide. In Chamdo County, eastern Tibet, he was looking after Phakpa Gyaltsen's children and other children who were attending school in the town.

The Chinese authorities have cited no reason for his detention.
