HONG KONG – Though Chinese leaders have restored Internet servicesand installed a new party chief with a lighter touch in the troubled far western region of Xinjiang, another restive region, neighboring Tibet, continues to roil under Beijing’s heavy hand.

The two-year crackdown on Tibet has reached the point where paranoid authorities in the regional capital of Lhasa are now raiding printing and photocopying shops in an attempt to stamp out the dissemination of any information that might be considered subversive. Soon all such shops in the city will reportedly be required to re-register with the government to enable public security officials to collect the names, addresses and identity numbers of potential troublemakers.
