Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama gestures while speaking to the media at his residence in Dharamsala March 18, 2008. (Arko Datta/Reuters) The Dalai Lama said on Tuesday he was willing to step down as head of the Tibetan government in exile if that was needed to stop the riots in his homeland, but China repeated its charge that he had masterminded the violence.

The government-in-exile, based in the Indian Himalayan foothills, said it believed 99 people had died in clashes between Chinese authorities and Tibetans over the past week, including 19 on Tuesday alone.

This is such a complete travesty. I hope enough countries has enough courage and resolve to  boycott the Olympics. I have no words. To do something, go to Students for a Free Tibet.
