14:44, March 21, 2008

Former vice-chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee Ragdi said here Wednesday morning that the distorted news coverage on the recent Lhasa riot is "outrageous and ill motivated".

"Some Western media purposely distorted the facts and viciously described severe crime as peaceful demonstration, so as to slander our legitimate efforts to keeping social stability as violent crackdown," the Tibet-born Ragdi said.

"It's outrageous that the irresponsible news coverage of some Western media even failed to discover facts of the riot," Ragdi told a meeting of the Counseling Committee on Development of the Tibet Autonomous Region.
