Tibetans tortured after shooting – Beatings and arrests follow prayer gathering.
Yama Tsering was one of at least 20 people who were arrested following the shooting. Some were severely beaten, including those who had been shot.
There are unconfirmed reports of others being subjected to electric shocks while in detention.
Tibetan nuns beaten
A nun who was severely beaten during detention has been hospitalised.
Eleven serious injuries were reported at the hospital but it is believed that many others did not seek treatment for fear of being arrested.
The current conditions who those who are being treated are unknown; this includes Tashi Sonam, a monk who was shot in the head.
Our pictures show security forces surrounding Tibetans who were participating in the celebrations and the injuries sustained by one man during the subsequent attack.
