China blocks YouTube access over Tibet protest videos

China blocked access to YouTube.Com on Sunday after dozens of videos of recent protests in Tibet appeared on the popular US video website.


The blocking added to the communist government's efforts to control what the public saw and heard about protests that erupted Friday in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, against Chinese rule. Access to YouTube.Com, usually readily available in China, was blocked after videos appeared on the site Saturday
