The Olympic torch was paraded on Saturday in the sealed-off Tibetan capital Lhasa under a hawk-eye vigil by troops in the city rocked by bloody anti-government protests three months ago, with China declaring that the "red flag" will "forever flutter high" in Tibet.

Police and paramilitary troops dotted the route as the flame wound its way through the streets for three-hour journey with handpicked groups of people cheering it by waving Chinese flags, a day after the government announced that it had sentenced 12 more people for the March riots.
