PhayulMonday, November 11, 2013

DHARAMSHALA :  A 20 year old Tibetan monk has set himself ablaze earlier today in Tibet’s Pema County in Golok, a Tibetan source told phayul.

A monk of Akyong monastery, Tsering lit himself up in protest against the Chinese government and his hardline policies, the same source said. Engulfed in flames, Tsering collapsed after walking a few metres. Chinese police on street patrol arrived at the scene and doused the fire. Tsering was rushed to the county hospital where he is kept under strict police surveillance.

Tsering is the 123rd Tibetan to set his body ablaze in protest against China since 2009.
