Travel ban for Tibetan activist
Hu Jintao
Like other visiting Chinese leaders, Hu Jintao may face protests
A Tibetan activist says he has been ordered not to leave the town of Dharamsala during a three-day visit to India by Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Tenzin Tsundue says police say he must stay in Dharamsala to stop him organising anti-Chinese protests.

The exiled Tibetan government of the Dalai Lama, who fled Tibet in 1959, is based in Dharamsala.

Mr Tsundue told the AFP news agency he had sought an appointment with Mr Hu but was being restricted by India.

"We protest because we do not get access to Chinese leaders," Mr Tsundu, who was born in India, told the AFP news agency.

"We will make our presence felt. Our cause is getting lost in the complicated international politics of India and China."

The exiled Tibetan government protested against the ruling, which will ban Mr Tsundue from leaving Dharamsala during Mr Hu's 20-23 November visit.

He has previously protested against visits by Chinese leaders in 2002 and 2005.
