Protesters? Nah--They're ... Extreme Fighters! Yeah, Yeah, That's It!
From the BBC:
China says video footage that purportedly shows Chinese security personnel violently beating Tibetans last year is "a lie".Shorter China: "Who says those images of our security forces beating people came from Tibet? Those images of our security forces beating people could have come from anywhere in China!"
The video apparently shows protesters being beaten with sticks, and kicked and choked by China's security forces.
The Tibetan government-in-exile says the footage shows China's "brutality".
But a Chinese government official said many of the images and voices in the video had been pieced together from different sources.
Glad we've cleared that up.
Why does China simply lie bald-facedly to the world every single time they're caught out doing what they do?
