The Olympic Torch arrived in San Francisco early Tuesday morning for its only stop in the United States. The Torch arrives amid anti-Chinese protests around the world.

Its path around the globe already has been marked by protests against China's policies toward Tibet, Sudan, and Myanmar.

The flame will be taken to an undisclosed location in San Francisco Wednesday and about 80 torchbearers will carry the flame on a six mile route along the San Francisco Bay.

Rallies, vigils and news conferences related to the torch's arrival have taken place in San Francisco almost daily for the past several weeks, including a protest Monday at the Golden Gate Bridge.
