From three o'clock in the afternoon onward, the mob moved along Yutuo Road, Beijing East Road, and Duosenge Road, smashing businesses and setting fires.
They stormed into shops, hospitals and news agencies. Nearby public facilities, transportation and electric power lines were damaged.
Seven banks operating within the area failed to escape the mob. Rioters smashed ten ATM machines to pieces leaving those branches in a complete mess.
Rioters set fires in the areas around the Jokhong Temple, Ramoche Temple and the Chomsigkang Market. In the city centre, fires started in the Si Fang supermarket, Lan Dun Plaza and Wen Zhou Plaza.

When firefighters arrived, two of their fire trucks were torched and four firefighters were injured.

We would all be better informed if the Chinese hadn’t thrown all foreign reporters out of Tibet and counties of China with large populations of Tibetans. In the U.S. that is known as a news blackout. A phenomenon of totalitarian states.
