A blogger who called himself Han Jinshan, a Lhasa resident, recalled the sabotage in a post titled Four-hour Personal Experience of Lhasa's Riots.

The man drove a car onto the streets in the afternoon only to find flames with heavy smoke blanketed the area of the Ramogia Monastery and ambulances whistled by, according to the post.

"When my car arrived at the road entrance to the Ramogia Monastery, I saw the ground was covered with rocks weighing one or two kilograms and a cab was burnt down," he wrote.

"I saw a dozen of mobs, mainly young men in their twenties, were burning cars in front of the Baiyi Supermarket with more than 200 people standing by and watching," he said.

"At 17:56, a police car arrived and the mobs ran away. The police didn't chase them as another two cabs were on fire at the New Jiangsu Avenue some 300 meters ahead."

"At this time, a Han Chinese women, whose face was bleeding, ran by me and later a cab with broken windows passed by," he wrote.

"The history of Tibet and even of China will remember the day of March 14 in 2008 forever," the writer said.
