His Holiness the Dalai Lama Urges China to Restrain; Offers Prayer for Xinjiang Victims
 
 
I am deeply saddened and concerned with the worsening situation in East Turkestan (Xinjiang), especially with the tragic loss of lives.
 
I earnestly urge the Chinese authorities to exercise restraint in dealing with the situation in a spirit of understanding and far-sightedness. 
 
I offer my prayers for those who lost their lives, their families and others affected by this sad turn of events.
