Sydney, March 15 (DPA) Tibetans showing solidarity with protesters in their homeland Saturday stormed the Chinese consulate in Sydney. There were seven arrests as demonstrators clashed with police after scaling the three-metre wall that surrounds the diplomatic compound.

The protest came after reports that 10 people had been killed in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa.

The 50 protesters outnumbered police, who used batons and capsicum spray to keep them at bay.
