China welcomes Olympic flame amid protest concerns

China celebrated the Olympic flame's arrival on Monday but a thick blanket of security highlighted concerns that protests over Tibet, human rights and other issues may tarnish the historic torch relay. The flame arrived from Greece on Monday morning ahead of what will be an epic journey through 19 countries, before it returns to China for a three-month tour. Video: AFP
