Announcer: Now a voice seldom heard by Western ears, the Dalai Lama, a mystic reverence who ruled over Tibet until the Chinese Communists took over. In April the 23-year-old Dalai Lama fled to India, where he told of his people's attempt to throw off the Chinese yoke.

Dalai Lama: "(Chinese.)"

Interpreter: "The Chinese have taken by force and ruined tens of thousands of homes belonging to my people. Over a thousand monasteries have been destroyed by the Chinese, and more are being reduced to ruin even today."
