"The Dalai Lama has cancelled his trip to South Africa, where he had been invited by fellow Nobel Peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The Tibetan spiritual leader's office said the South African government had failed to grant him a visa on time. Pretoria has maintained that it did not come under pressure from China to stop the visit." (10/04/11)
