Tibet Photo Exhibition Locked Down

Today authorities in Bangladesh have locked the gates of a photographic exhibition about Tibetans-in-exile.  At the time of this post a live video stream was available  http://www.drik.tv/IntoExile-Tibet/  The photojournalism event had been organised by Students for a Free Tibet with support from the Drik network. The event had come to the attention of communist China, which no doubt exerted considerablepressutre upon the Bangladeshi government to close the exhbition. Others may wonder if India may have  orchestrated the closure, given the controversy and sensitivity surrounding the forthcoming visit  of the Dalai Lama to nearby Arunachal Pradesh.
