Profile: The Dalai Lama – BBC News

From the BBC News (link):

In March 1959, as Chinese troops crushed an attempted uprising in Tibet, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, fled into India.

With few countries prepared to respond to China's actions and responsible for the thousands of Tibetans who followed their leader into exile, he faced a difficult task to protect Tibetans and their traditions.
