"This is glorious Olympic Stadium in Beijing... oops, wrong slide, silly me..." CLICK! "THIS is glorious Olympic Stadium in Beijing. That was body of a Tibetan trouble maker about to be cremated..." 27 March, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0005907

In two frames shows a Chinese man showing slides of the Chinese Olympic preparations. Unfortunately he shows an image of a Tibetan corpse wrapped and ready for cremation by mistake. He laughingly changes to the correct image and explains that that was the body of a Tibetan trouble maker about to be cremated. Refers to the violent Tibetan demonstrations against the Chinese in March, 2008 which resulted in several Tibetans being shot by Chinese armed police. The Chinese are anxious that there be no 'trouble' in the run up to and during the Olympic Games which will start in July in Beijing.
