    Background: Angry Tibetans demonstrated at the Bhutan Embassy in the Indian capital, Delhi, on Thursday (1 August) at the Bhutan Government's announcement that it is to try a number of Tibetans, including the brother of the Tibetan Dalai Lama. They are accused of attempting to assassinate the King of Bhutan.

    The Bhutan Government alleges that Mr. Gyalo Thondup, brother of the Dalai Lama (the spiritual and constitutional leader of Tibet) and Princess Yangki, second wife of the late King of Bhutan, were active "conspirators" in a plot to assassinate the new King of Bhutan.

    The princess is accused of wanting to slay the present King to make way for her "illegitimate" son of the throne.

    About 200 Tibetans in Delhi took part in the demonstration, distributing leaflets calling on the Bhutan Government to furnish proof of the allegations they have made against their fellow countrymen in Bhutan. Apart from a brief scuffle the demonstration was peaceful.
