Attacks on unarmed Tibetans caught on tape

Europeans climbing Mt. Everest seem to have caught some extremely disturbing footage of Tibetans being picked off by Chinese soldiers while trying to make a pilgrimage to see the Dalai Lama in India. According to the narrator, the national Chinese news agency was broadcasting news that Chinese soldiers had been attacked by Tibetan pilgrims while trying to nonviolently persuade the Tibetans to return. I can't vouch for the video's authenticity, but I do see that it was produced by ProTV, which is the most popular channel in Romania, so I doubt that it's fake. On the upside, at least someone was watching.

Update: This is apparently an old story from 2006.
