Chinese police and paramilitary forces have fired machine guns on a group of Tibetan protesters. The group had been peacefully demonstrating for three days after the arrival of hundreds of miners who were due to start operations on a mountain that has special religious significance to the local population.
The protesters had flown Chinese flags over their camp to show that they weren't Tibetan nationalists and were simply campaigning against the mining. Amazingly no one has been reported killed but there were at least 14 people hospitalised.
