Three more Tibetans died of untreated wounds after paramilitary troops fired upon unarmed Tibetans in Kardze, the Tibetan area of Kham, last week. (ICT report, Tibetans with wounds after shooting denied medical treatment: deployment of military leads to mass detentions in village in Kham) This follows the death of two other Tibetans held in custody, one of whom committed suicide, while the other died of untreated wounds.
The three Tibetans who died at the detention centre in Loshu (Chinese: Luoxu) in Kardze (Chinese: Ganzi,) were identified by exile Tibetan sources as Tsewang Gonpo, 60; Yeshe, in his early forties, and Jinpa Tharchin, who was 18. Their bodies were returned to their families earlier this week.
