The British Museum's exhibition of China's Terracotta Army was today targeted by pro-Tibetan protesters who hung placards with slogans around two of the statues' necks.

Martin Wyness, 50, and Mark Trepte, 47, said they put placards on the warriors, saying "Stop Killing Tibetans" and "Boycott the Chinese Olympics."

The protesters, from Hereford, claimed that onlookers clapped as they mounted the demonstration over the violent crackdown by the Chinese authorities in Tibet.
