WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Park Police said that 3 men were arrested, repelling from the Arlington Memorial Bridge trying to hang a banner ushering the words “Free Tibet”.
Harbor and Park Police responded to the situation. They say the protestors are safe and in custody at the bridge site.
This could be related to Xi Jinping visiting Washington, D.C., China’s new president in waiting who is slated to succeed the superpower’s current leader next year.
