    Sichuan Police Block CNN Crew From Tibetan Area

    Police stopped a three-person CNN TV crew led by reporter Jon Vause at a police checkpoint about 300 kilometres from Aba, their intended destination in Sichuan province and the origin of reports alleging multiple Tibetan shooting victims.

    Police told the journalists to step out of the car, took their photos, and wrote down details from their passports. The police acted firmly but politely, and asked the crew to turn around.
