Dalai Lama to Step Down if Tibet Gets 'Out of Control'

Hosted by  • 

It was 50 years ago last week that the Dalai Lama fled Tibet, an anniversary that has been marked by deadly protests inside the country. Although details are scarce, since the Chinese government has banned foreign journalists from entering Tibet, cell phone images and clandestine phone calls from Lhasa have provided some specifics from the clashes, which may have left as many as 80 dead. Somini Sengupta, New Delhi Bureau Chief for the New York Times, is in Dharamsala, India, where the Dalai Lama lives in exile.
