China Says Tibetan Lama Who Was 13 Years Into Life Sentence Died of Cardiac Arrest

The cause of death of a Tibetan lama who was serving a life sentence in a Chinese prison was cardiac arrest, according to state media.
His supporters say the charges were trumped up, and his family had complained last week it had been denied access to his death certificate and medical records.
The official Xinhua News Agency reported late Saturday that a prison guard had found Tenzin Delek suffering from respiratory failure about two hours after the monk began to take his usual nap on July 12. His body was cremated on Thursday in Chengdu city in Sichuan province, where he had been held for the last 13 years.
