BEIJING, March 25 -- China's security chief called for stepping up
"patriotic education" in Tibet's monasteries, the state-run Tibet Daily
said Tuesday, as prosecutors for the first time charged demonstrators
in the largely peaceful, monk-led protests that later exploded into
riots in the region.

Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu led the first high-level
central government visit to Tibet since the riots broke out this month.
In the face of international criticism of China's crackdown, he
stressed that the government would "fight an active publicity battle"
and solicit the help of Communist Party cadres.

His call for broader "patriotic education" indicated the party would
also move to exert greater control over religion in Tibet, requiring
more Tibetans to accept the region as an inalienable part of China,
denounce the Dalai Lama as a separatist and recognize the
Chinese-appointed Panchen Lama. Such campaigns were first launched in

Angered by foreign sympathy for the protesters and support for the
Dalai Lama, China is bearing down hard on the exiled Tibetan religious
leader, blaming him and his followers for stirring up trouble in an
effort to sabotage the Beijing Olympics in August.

The Chinese crackdown has drawn international concern, with some
government leaders suggesting a boycott of the opening ceremony of the
Games. On Tuesday, when asked about the possibility, French President
Nicolas Sarkozy said, "All options are open, and I appeal to the
Chinese leaders' sense of responsibility." He added that he had sent a
message to Chinese President Hu Jintao noting his concern over the

The European Parliament, whose president has said a boycott should
be considered, has scheduled a special debate on the Tibet situation
Wednesday in Brussels.

Despite a heavy police and military presence across China, protests
continue to spread through regions that border Tibet. On Tuesday in
Sichuan province, where clashes between security forces and protesters
killed at least one policeman a day earlier, an estimated 400 to 500
Tibetan monks and others gathered in the main street of Luhuo, a
restaurant owner said in a telephone interview.

According to the owner, who gave his surname as Yan, police quickly
disrupted the gathering, but the atmosphere was still "very tense."

"Most shops are closed, including my restaurant," he said. "I have
been here for 17 years, and I have never seen anything like this."

The New China News Service identified the policeman killed Monday in
Sichuan's Garze prefecture as Wang Guochuan. Wang was killed by a mob
wielding stones and knives, according to the report.

"The police were forced to fire warning shots, and dispersed the lawless mobsters," the agency said.

The government says at least 22 people have died in Tibet since the
violence broke out; Tibetan rights groups say nearly 140 Tibetans have
been killed in Tibet and surrounding provinces.
