Three Americans and a Tibetan-American were detained by Chinese authorities on Mount Everest yesterday, as they called for independence for Tibet and protested against the Beijing Olympics.
The protest was organised by Students for a Free Tibet, which said three people were detained for holding up a banner at a base camp on the Tibetan side of the mountain that read:
One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008.
The fourth person detained by Chinese authorities was a camera person.
"One World, One Dream" is the slogan of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
