The Chinese state media announced more than 100 persons have now turned themselves in to police following anti-China riots in Tibet\'s main city, Lhasa.

People surrendered to secure leniency in response to a deadline set by the authorities.

China said it will harshly punish protesters who do not surrender and activists said police in Lhasa have been searching houses and making arrests.

China blame the Dalai Lama for the protests, which he rejects.

The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader has called for an end to violence, saying Tibetans have to live with the Chinese whether they like it or not.
