UN Council keeps silent on Tibet protests

The UN Security Council will likely keep silent about China's crackdown on demonstrations in Tibet, mostly due to worries that provoking Beijing would accomplish nothing, diplomats said on Monday.


China, which has sent in troops to enforce control in the regional capital Lhasa, said earlier that the violent protests by Tibetans were organized by followers of the Dalai Lama seeking to derail the Beijing Olympics in August. Tibet's exiled spiritual leader has denied this charge. (Reuters)
