China: Tibet Off Limits to Foreign Visitors for 2 Months

China has closed Tibet to foreign visitors until April 1, citing the “sensitive” political anniversaries which question the legitimacy of Beijing’s control over the Himilayan region.

March 10 is the 60th anniversary of an abortive 1959 uprising against Chinese rule in Tibet, while anti-government riots occurred March 14, 2008, in the regional capital Lhasa.
