What About Tibet?

Reliable information is a bit hard to come by, but it seems as if the policy of increased Han Chinese colonisation in Tibet has finally run up against a violent popular backlash.  I haven’t anything very insightful to say about this, but it is one of the major foreign affairs stories this week and merits some mention here.

Update: The Economist‘s correspondent reports that repression and violence against a number of monks helped spark the rioting.
