Since the outbreak of violence in March in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) and the Tibetan-populated areas of neighbouring provinces, the area remains off limits to foreign tourists, most journalists, and other independent observers. Based on official public statements over 1000 individuals remain in detention without reported charges or trials following on-going protests since the unrest began. A media black-out is still in effect in these areas. It is imperative now that the Chinese authorities open the area up to independent observers.
