BEIJING (AP) - Internet users in China were blocked from seeing YouTube.com on Sunday after dozens of videos about protests in Tibet appeared on the popular U.S. video Web site.

The blocking added to the communist government's efforts to control what the public saw and heard about protests that erupted Friday in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, against Chinese rule.

No YouTube in China, nor facebook or twitter

You can watch movies and TV dramas from the USA on many sites in China for free. One of those sites is YOKU: Summary for Youku.com Inc. American Deposit- Yahoo! Finance
