Dharamsala, Mar 2 (ANI): Tibetan exiles living in Dharamsala enjoyed a documentary film based on the Tibet-China conflict.

Many turned up to watch the film 'Murder in the Snow' that revolves around Tibetan refugees.

In September 2006, a group of climbers in the Himalayas saw the experiences of Tibetan refugees who were attempting to flee over the mountains. The film was made from the videotaped and photographed events supplied by them.

Tenzin, a Tibetan activist said that the film bears testimony to atrocities being carried out against the Tibetans.

"For the first time, Chinese soldiers killing innocent Tibetans have been captured by the mountaineers which has added to the fact that Tibetans are under oppression that Tibetans are still fleeing their country for better opportunities and to see His Holiness," said Tenzin.

The exiled Tibetans all over the world have been protesting and staging demonstrations against alleged Chinese atrocities on Tibetans in Lhasa.

Chinese troops occupied Tibet in 1950 and the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader who is now based in Northern India, fled the mountainous region in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule. (ANI)
