A Romanian TV station on Saturday released a video that it said showed Chinese troops shooting at Tibetan refugees.
The video footage from Pro TV’s website depicts a line of Tibetans walking through the snow on the Nangpa Pass when a shot is heard and one person in the group falls to the ground.
An unidentified man can be heard saying in English: ‘They are shooting them like dogs.’
A US-based rights group, the International Campaign for Tibet, identified the person who died as Tibetan nun Kelsang Namtso.
The event soon gained international focus and ‘The US ambassador on Thursday had gone to the foreign ministry to officially protest the September 30 shooting incident’.
