China has killed 'hundreds of thousands of Tibetans': Dalai Lama
Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Tuesday accused China of having killed hundreds of thousands of his people and transforming his Himalayan homeland into a "hell on earth."
"These 50 years have brought untold suffering and destruction to the land and people of Tibet," the Dalai Lama said in a message marking the 50th anniversary of a failed Tibetan uprising against China.
