Two runners are standing now holding the torch surrounded by police officers. It is a strange situation as there appears to be two runners with the torch.

They are now standing on the street heading south towards Pine and apparently will run, but they are standing in front of a truck which they may climb into and drive instead.

There are thousands of Pro-Tibet and Darfur protesters assembled as well as pro-Chinese.

Now dozens of police motorbikes appear and the procession starts.
