Dalai Lama: First Blood

Anytime you can get a news item that says, "Seventeen lamas burst into a chapel", it's got to be put in the ABP!

Link: Dalai Lama blamed by Chinese after monks attack Tibetan rivals.

China has accused the Dalai Lama of sabotage and provoking religious conflict after a group of Tibetan monks stormed a monastery near Lhasa and attacked statues of a deity denounced by the exiled leader.

Seventeen lamas burst into a chapel in Gandan monastery in March and tore down two clay statues of protective deities, claiming they were "evil spirits". They began fighting with six worshippers, China's official Xinhua news agency reported.
