Tibetan conflicts 2008

Protests by Tibetans against Chinese have sparked a lot of violence in the region. I don't know how this affects train travel or tourism in that region, but Lhasa appears to be under some form of information blockade:

If you are planning a trip on the China trains to this region it might be wise to contact the US State Department for travel tips, though the violence is clearly not directed at Americans.
