China on Tuesday accused “secessionist groups” abroad of distorting facts on the spate of suicides by Buddhist monks, a day after a Tibetan was killed and several others injured in deadly clashes with police in southwest Sichuan province.


“Overseas forces of ‘Tibet independence’ have always fabricated rumours and distorted the truth to discredit the Chinese government with issues involving Tibet,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson, Hong Lei said on Tuesday.

He was reacting to assertions by overseas Tibetan groups that three people were killed and over 30 injured when hundreds of Tibetan protestors clashed with police at a police station in Luhuo county of Sichuan’s Gan­zi Tibetan autonomous prefecture.
