BEIJING — Fresh protests broke out in the Tibetan capital Lhasa on Saturday, a radio broadcaster and Tibetan activists reported.
A protest at Lhasa's Ramoche monastery grew to involve many people, said Kate Saunders of the International Campaign for Tibet in Washington.
Citing unnamed witnesses, Saunders said the situation calmed after a few hours. She had no information on injuries or arrests.
People also protested at the Jokhang Temple, a major Buddhist site in Lhasa, said the government-in-exile of the Tibetan Buddhist leader, the Dalai Lama, on its Web site.
Several hundred people took part in the protests, the U.S.-funded broadcaster Radio Free Asia reported.
The Ramoche and Jokhang monasteries and other sites were sealed off by security forces, Saunders said. Ramoche was the original site of protests that spread this month and led to a bloody crackdown by the Chinese government.
The reports of new protests came as a 15-member group of diplomats from the United States, Japan and Europe returned to Beijing after a two-day visit to Lhasa.
