    Sichuan Police Block Canadian TV Crew From Tibetan Area

    Police at a roadblock five hours’ drive southwest of Chengdu ordered a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s television crew to return to Chengdu and “not venture out of the city.” The three-member TV crew was trying to reach Tibetan areas.

    “The police officers who manned the roadblock on the only road leading to the area were polite but firm. They said no foreigner was allowed into the area because of concerns for their safety,” said CBC Bureau Chief Michel Cormier.
