Public order in Tibet and nearby Gansu Province has been restored, after the riots in mid March. Damaged shops and bank branches, along with the public transportation system, are back to normal operation.

The Gannan area in Gansu Province is also recovering from four days of damage in recent riots.

Villagers from all around have rushed back for basic supplies.

Herdswoman Kane said, "There's no price change in cooking oil."

Rioters burned down the local mobile phone operator's office. For customer convenience, staff have set up temporary stands with top up and billing services.
