GENEVA, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Tibetan activists protesting at China's rule over Tibet scaled scaffolding on the U.N. European headquarters in Geneva early on Tuesday and unfurled a banner ahead of a session convened to examine China's human rights record.
At least three protesters from Students for a Free Tibet climbed up the Palais des Nations, currently under renovation, and put up a white banner reading: "China human rights - U.N. stand up on Tibet".
A United Nations spokeswoman, informed by Reuters of the incident, had no immediate reaction.
Beijing has no intention of altering its "correct" policies in Tibet as they have brought unprecedented achievements, a Chinese government white paper said earlier on Tuesday.
