Nepal: Everest Pro-Tibet Protesters May Be Shot
“About 25 soldiers and policemen have established camps on the mountain and they have been ordered to use force if necessary to stop any anti-Chinese activities,” Mod Raj Dotel, spokesman for the home ministry, said Sunday. “This could mean shooting if necessary.”
Security personnel will also check mountain climbers for non-essential expedition materials, Dotel added.
“If anyone is found with anti-Chinese material their permit will be canceled and returned from the mountain,” he said.
