WORLD IN BRIEF : TIBET : Thousands Jailed by China, Report Says

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Thousands of Tibetans have been beaten, tortured and imprisoned since demonstrations by civilians and monks against Chinese rule were crushed two years ago, according to a report released in Boston by the Physicians for Human Rights. The crackdown has been so widespread that there may be few people in Lhasa, the region's capital, who have not had a relative or friend detained, it said. The report is based on interviews by two Americans with several dozen Tibetan exiles in India.
