Dharamshala – Hundreds of Tibetans asked and begged the Chinese authorities to halt the construction of the Kamtok dam on the Drichu River in the Gege region.

Dharamshala – A young Tibetan student from Tibet University in Lhasa died mysteriously, while in Chinese police detention on January 15, 2024.
