New images of aftermath of Nangpa pass shooting
A new set of images received by ICT depicts a group of Chinese police at the scene of the shooting of the young Tibetan nun on the Nangpa Pass near the border of Nepal on September 30. The images depict police and possibly officials gathered around the body the day after the nun, 17-year old Kelsang Namtso, was shot dead by People's Armed Police while she was crossing the pass into exile in Nepal with a large group of Tibetans including children, other nuns and monks. Her death was witnessed by a large number of international climbers, Sherpas and porters at advance base camp on Mount Cho Oyu, west of Mt Everest.
