Mr. Monk and the Omaha SWAT Team


What happens when six Tibetan monks on a peace mission to the United States overstay their visas? Immigrations officials, accompanied by a SWAT team in riot gear, arrest them. That's just what happened to a group of monks recently in Omaha. At last report, they had bonded out of jail and were awaiting trial in an immigration court. Their attorney says they want to leave the country but have to stay until the government permits them to leave.
