Lama: Tibet Is "Hell on Earth"

Today is the 50th anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s exile from Tibet. What has he to say? In a speech from the Indian town in which he lives in exile, the Dalai Lama said Chinese martial law and hard-line policies have “thrust Tibetans into such depths of suffering and hardship that they literally experienced hell on earth. The immediate result of these campaigns was the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Tibetans." He also warned that Tibetan culture and identity are “nearing extinction.”
