Around 200 Tibetans staged a peaceful demonstration in Drango, Kardze, chanting “Long live the Dalai Lama” and “Freedom for Tibet”. The protesters were met by a large number of armed police and security who fired live ammunition indiscriminately into the protesting crowd; at least one monk, 18 year-old Kunga, died. In Golog more than 50 protesters staged a non-violent protest; all protesters were arrested.
