Ziyi Puzzled By Olympics Protests

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON star ZHANG ZIYI is puzzled by protests ahead of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in China - insisting she can't understand why people have such "negative" attitudes.
The Games are due to get underway in the Chinese capital next month (Aug08) but the run-up to the event has been dogged by demonstrations from campaigners angry at the country's treatment of Tibetans.
And the 29-year-old actress is baffled as to why protestors would target an event like the Olympics - as it is supposed to be a symbol of international unity.
She says, "I don't see why people are so negative. The games are about friendship. I'm Chinese and I'm proud of my country."
Tibet lost independence to China in 1951, and Chinese authorities have come under fire in recent months over their human rights record in the region.
