Dharamshala: Tibetan lobby groups based in Dharamshala said thousands of protesters would mark Tuesday’s 50th anniversary of the failed uprising that forced them into exile.
Meanwhile, China said it had deployed extra soldiers along Tibet’s international border as part of ramped-up security measures.
The warning came despite appeals from the Dalai Lama, their spiritual leader, for restrained ceremonies and prayers to commemorate the events — but radical young Tibetans said they were determined to make their voices heard.
