Sad news in the recent ICT bulletin

The past issue of the International Campaign for Tibet's news bulletin had several sad stories.

Somehow I didn't hear about the shooting of a Tibetan nun by Chinese police as she and others tried to cross the border between Tibet and Nepal. The incident was seen and filmed by several climbers at the Cho Oyu advance base camp near Mt Everest. (ICT story here and here, video here).

There was also an article in memory of conservationist Mingma Sherpa who died in the helicopter crash last year in which 24 people were killed.
