Anti-China protests echo in J&K

April 17, 2008
Tibetan refugees held a symbolic candlelight protest in Srinagar against the Olympic torch relay in New Delhi on Thursday.

Scores of Tibetan settlers, carrying candles, staged a sit-in at the historic Pratap Park in the Jammu and Kashmir capital.

Dressed in anti-Chinese slogan inscribed yellow robes, the protestors marched through the city centre, Lal Chowk and adjacent roads.
