Details are emerging from this morning’s protest near the Olympic Village.

Four protesters from Students for a Free Tibet were arrested this morning after unfurling banners in the shadow of the National Stadium aka the Bird’s Nest. Students for a Free Tibet has short bios on the protesters and photos of the action on their Web site.

All this happened on the day the torch ceremoniously made its way to Tiananmen Square and through Beijing.

Arty Berko of ESPN has a first-hand account of the early-morning protests and his (intimidating) interaction with security officials.
