CNN also quoted a Han woman who said she had been beaten by a group of Tibetans. "I am now in hospital with a bandage on my head," she said. "The trains are closed and I am not sure if I can take a plane back, or if I can reach the airport. All is chaotic now."

The Chinese state-run news agency Xinhua confirmed that fires had been set in Lhasa, reports Reuters.

The Associated Press writes that a Tibetan woman on the scene said that protesters had set fire to police cars as well, after police stopped a demonstration near a small temple.

"The monks are still protesting. Police and army cars were burned. There are people crying," said the woman. "Hundreds of people, including monks and civilians are in the protest." ...
Officials who answered phones at police and Communist Party offices in Tibet on Friday said they had no information about the violence and refused to comment.
