The Hindu, March 21st, 2008

New Delhi (PTI): Tibetan protesters on Friday stormed the Chinese Embassy here, taking the security personnel by surprise and scaling the walls of the high-security complex.

The protesters, most of them students, scaled the walls of the embassy complex in the high-security Chanakyapuri area, waving the Tibetan flag and draped in banners carrying anti-China messages such as "Boycott Beijing Olympics".

While the Tibetan Youth Congress said around 20 protesters, including some women, had entered the embassy premises, the police said around five of them had managed to scale the walls.

Police said they arrested 33 Tibetans. Full Article Link
