China and Tibet

On March 26 China said it would allow the first group of foreign journalists to visit Tibet — under escort — since violent protests began earlier this month.  Reported Associated Press, “It was unclear how much freedom to report the small group of foreign journalists, among them an Associated Press reporter, would have during the Chinese government-arranged two-day trip. The visit comes amid rising international pressure over China’s crackdown in Tibet less than five months ahead of the Beijing Olympics.”
