Dalai Lama on high alert for Chinese-trained Tibetan women on a mission to kill him: report
Says he received report that fake followers would try to kill him by applying poison to their hair and clothes
The Dalai Lama is on high alert after receiving reports that Chinese agents have trained Tibetan women for a mission to assassinate him.
The 76-year-old Nobel Laureate says he was warned that fake devotees would attempt to kill him by applying poison to their hair or clothes and then getting the Dalai Lama to touch them during a blessing.
"We received some sort of information from Tibet," he said in an interview with the UK's Sunday Telegraph newspaper. "Some Chinese agents training some Tibetans, especially women, you see, using poison - the hair poisoned, the scarf poisoned - they were supposed to seek blessing from me, and my hand touch."
The Tibetan Buddhist leader, who has been in exile in India since 1959, has a high-security perimeter around the grounds of his temple in the Himalayan foothills.
Tensions between Tibet and China have grown this year in the wake of a large number of self-immolations by Tibetan protesters, the newspaper noted.
At least 34 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in the past year in protest of the Chinese government's treatment of the religious and cultural minority, according to the BBC.
