Yahoo And MSN Helping To Root Out Tibetan Rioters

From The Observers:

Yahoo China pasted a “most wanted” poster across its homepage today in aid of the police’s witch-hunt for 24 Tibetans accused of taking part in the recent riots. MSN China made the same move, although it didn’t go as far as publishing the list on its homepage.

The “most wanted” poster has been published on several Chinese portals like Sina.com and news.qq.com. It reads “The Chinese police have issued a warrant for the arrest of suspected rioters in Tibet” and provides a phone number for informants to use in total anonymity. Along with the text are photos of Tibetans taken during the riots. Of the 24 on the list, two have already been caught.
