Canadian Television CTV broadcast the following video clip, showing Tibetans raiding Chinese government offices in Gansu Province:
Tibetan rioters spilled into the neighbouring Chinese province of Gansu Tuesday and tried to storm a government office, despite efforts by the military to quell protests against Chinese rule.
Roughly 100 armed troops holed up inside the building repelled the protesters with tear gas, as CTV cameras filmed the confrontation.
One protester, bleeding profusely from the head, said he had been beaten by the soldiers.
Chinese official news agency Xinhua reports: Shops, government offices suffer damage from SW China riots:
Great damage has been done to the shops and government offices in the Aba County of southwestern Sichuan Province since riots rocked the Tibetan-inhabited county on Sunday.
Reportedly, police and government officials were injured by the rioters, and the amount of damage is not available, according to the county government.
The unrest began on Sunday afternoon when a group of rioters, shouting slogans of “Tibet Independence”, carrying rocks and self-made petrol bombs or waving the flag of “Tibetan-government-in-exile”, attacked government offices, including the county government office building, police stations, hospitals, schools, shops and markets
