Another Tibetan Monk Sets Himself on Fire in China

 Tenzin Choeden
Another Tibetan monk, the 19-year-old Lobsang Gyatso, from Kirti Monastery has set himself on fire in Ngaba Town, in south-western China, say Free Tibet and the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT). He is the second teenager to set himself on fire in Ngaba in the last three days, following Tenzin Choeden, who died last Saturday. (See also here and here).

In the last year, at least 21 young Tibetans have died the same way.

Here is the link to an online petition calling for a U.N.-led fact-finding mission to observe the situation in Tibet. (Via Tibet News)

  2. There is a terribly chilling contrast between such appalling, infernal, individual sacrifice and the cold, callous indifference of the Chinese authorities.
    Then with horror one realises that as more and more young Tibetans take their own lives in such an atrocious way, there is also the risk that such indifference isn't only limited to the Chinese authorities..
