People of the world, stand up for Tibet
People of the world, stand up for Tibet
Clean media Correspondent 
New Delhi: Mar 29: (CMC)  The Tibetan who burned himself alive on the eve of a visit by China's President left behind a letter that urged the world to stand up for his homeland, activists said, while Indian authorities detained more Tibetans on Thursday in the Indian capital. 
Police have taken hundreds of Tibetans into custody since Monday's self-immolation of Jamphel Yeshi, 27, and have effectively closed off New Delhi's Tibetan neighbourhoods, fearing embarrassing protests during the visit by China's President Hu Jintao. At least three more Tibetans were taken away by police on Wednesday, activists said. Police confirmed there had been additional people detained, but refused to say how many. 
The Tibetans are expected to be released after Hu leaves New Delhi on Friday. He is in the city for the BRICS summit with India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa.
