Chinese accuse Dalai Lama-

Reported on the VOICE of AMERICA web site today, as well as other news sites:

Chinese state media say Beijing is accusing the Dalai Lama of stirring up religious conflict in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery.

China's state-run Xinhua news agency reports Wednesday, a group of Buddhist monks smashed clay statues and protective deities at the Danden Monastery near the regional capital, Lhasa, in March.

The mayor of Lhasa says the incident was not isolated or accidental. He blames followers of the exiled spiritual leader for provoking the violence to arouse conflict between different sects of Tibetan Buddhism, and to sabotage the unity of Tibet. There has been no public comment from the Dali Lama.
