Tibet security tightened as Olympics arrive

In an action following April's protests and crackdowns in Tibet, the Chinese government is tightening security on the region in advance of the Olympics, reports The Times of London.

This is on the heels of an agreement between the International Olympic Committee and the Chinese government to block reporters' access to what the groups call "sensitive" websites, including those of Amnesty International and Falun Gong.
