Tibetan monks arrested in China

Per the Times of India, Chinese government arrested nearly 100 Tibetan monks for rioting and allegedly attacking a police station. Government sources said the monks from the Ragya Monastery assaulted police officers and government staff.

Twitterers who commented on the story mostly saw irony in the violence among the Tibetan monks.

battleajah: I'm always horrifyingly amused for each time I read about Tibetan monks getting violent:

reqa930: Wait...I thought Tibetan monks are supposed to be nonviolent and peaceful...why are they being arrested for attacking cops??
