China is reported to have blocked access to YouTube video-sharing because of it showing videos of soldiers beating Tibetan monks and passers-by. The actual date and location of the footage cannot be confirmed. Google has reported the YouTube video-sharing web site being blocked, although it has not explained why.

Xinhua did not identify the video, but based on their description it appears to match a video that was available on YouTube, which had been released by the Tibetan government-in-exile.
