New Delhi, April 16 - Some 60 members of the Tibetan Youth Congress tried to storm the Chinese Embassy in Chankyapuri today. They were there to demonstrate against the Chinese tyranny and the recent clampdown following the March 10 uprising in Tibet. China has since gone on a killing spree and arrested thousands of Tibetans in the region. Tibetan Youth Congress, one of the most active organizations in exile for the Tibetan independence led today's protest against China in the Indian Capital, just 24 hours away from the Olympic torch relay scheduled to be held tomorrow (April 17) beginning from Rajpath to India Gate.

The protestors arrived in two buses at the Chinese Embassy where some 500 security personnel and policemen from Delhi as well as neighboring states were deployed. The activists raised anti-China slogans and demanded the restoration of peace in Tibet. Armed with the Tibetan National Flag, the young Tibetan men and women demonstrated against Chinese brutality in their homeland amid heavy security barrier and obstacles. Rallying through the barb wired barricades and police presence the activist raised 'Free Tibet' slogans before being herded by the Indian police. Due to massive safety measures taken by the Indian government in safeguarding the Embassy premises, the protestors were unable to storm its grounds. The demonstration also caused slow movement of traffic through Shantipath for approximately 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, the Indians for Free Tibet group organized a car rally in support of Tibet and passed through Shantipath with a participation of around seven cars in the Capital.
