French police have arrested three photojournalists after the men
photographed pro-Tibet protesters unfurling a banner near the Chinese
embassy in Paris.

The three, including one from Agence France-Presse (AFP), had their
cameras confiscated but were later released after being questioned
for nearly three hours, one of them said.

One of the protesters was also arrested, said the police. He was
still in custody after the photographers' release.

The pro-Tibet demonstrators climbed onto the roof of a property next
to the Chinese embassy and dropped the banner, reading China Lies -
Tibetans die, down the front of the adjacent building, the AFP
photographer said.

Police officers later took the banner down.
