Some tibetan pilgrims around a stupa in the monastery of Labrang (Xiahe) where some riots have erupted in march 2008. Since then the town has been closed to foreigners and only reopened in october. The town is under stress while trials and condamnations are settling in november. At the entries of the monastery two videocameras are now monitoring the streets.
