CHINA - CRACKDOWN IN TIBET AWAY FROM THE EYE OF THE MEDIA IN NEW VIOLATION OF OLYMPICS PLEDGE - 17.03.2008

Reporters Without Borders today strongly condemned steps taken by Beijing to prevent media coverage of demonstrations and an ongoing crackdown in Tibet and in provinces where Tibetans live. Foreign journalists have been stopped from entering the province and tight censorship has been imposed on the Internet and in the Chinese press.

The authorities have since 12 March refused to grant foreign correspondents permits to enter Tibet and at least 25 journalists, including 15 from Hong Kong, have reportedly been expelled from Tibet or Tibetan areas.
