Chinese Premier Greeted By Protesters.
A number of protesters from the Free Tibet group were handcuffed by police after trying to approach Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during his UK visit.

Several people vaulted barriers as he arrived outside the Chinese Embassy in London amid a noisy demonstration.

Supporters of Mr Wen were also outside the building, where he was greeted by dragon dancers and firecrackers.

The Chinese Prime Minister had earlier met Tory leader David Cameron and shadow foreign secretary William Hague.

The focus of the meeting had been on the global financial downturn, with the UK and China both keen to boost their economic ties.

But Mr Hague had said the talks would not gloss over China's human rights record, adding: "We always in our meetings with Chinese leaders raise issues of human rights and Tibet."
