China locks down Lhasa on riots anniversary

Chinese forces and plainclothed police have imposed a lockdown around the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, on the first anniversary of a violent anti-Chinese riot. Tourists and journalists have been barred from the area. The riots last March, in which up to 200 people died, erupted after Buddhist monks led peaceful protests calling on China to allow the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader to return to Lhasa. On Friday China's Premier Wen Jiabao said Beijing was willing to hold talks with the Dalai Lama if he renounced a so-called separatist agenda.

BEIJING — Officially, Tuesday is an ordinary day here. Ordinary or not, however, the police will be on high alert, and some villages across Tibetan areas of western China will be under virtual military lockdown. For it was 50 years ago on Tuesday that 300,000 Tibetans surrounded the Dalai Lama’s palace in Lhasa, the start of a failed uprising against Chinese rule that resonates to this day.
