The Dalai Lama says reports indicate that Chinese agents have trained Tibetan women for a mission to murder him.
“We received some sort of information from Tibet,” the 76-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner told the paper. “Some Chinese agents training some Tibetans, especially women, you see, using poison – the hair poisoned, and the scarf poisoned – they were supposed to seek blessing from me, and my hand touch.”
Following the advice of Indian security officials, the Tibetan Buddhist leader told the paper he lives within a high security cordon in his temple palace grounds in Dharamsala, in the Himalayan foothills.
Relations between China and the Tibetan government-in-exile in India are poor and mutual suspicion high following more than 30 self-immolations in the last year by Tibetans in protest at Chinese moves to marginalize their language and culture, the Telegraph reports.
