Another Tibetan has set himself on fire today in protest against China’s continued occupation of Tibet in Bora, Sangchu region of Amdo.Lhamo Kyab, 27, today set himself on fire near the Bora Monastery at around 2 pm (local time).He succumbed to his burn injuries at the site of his protest.Engulfed in flames, Lhamo Kyab raised slogans calling for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet and then fell to the ground after walking a few steps.Following the self-immolation, a scuffle broke out at the site of the protest between Chinese security personnel and Tibetans, who succeeded in carrying Lhamo Kyab’s body inside the Monastery’s main prayer hall. The monks began to offer prayers for the deceased, even as a large number of Tibetans started to arrive at the Monastery upon hearing about the protest. As of latest information received, monks and local Tibetans have carried Lhamo Kyab’s body to his home. On March 20 earlier this year, more than 100 monks from the Bora Monastery had marched towards the township-level government buildings carrying Tibetan flags and pictures of the Dalai Lama calling for freedom in Tibet and the return of the Dalai Lama. The next day, Chinese security officers entered the Monastery and arrested 40 monks, prompting a gathering of a large number of monks calling for the immediate release of fellow monks. Bora monastery has faced heavy restrictions since the 2008 uprisings in Tibet. The restrictions were tightened after Losar, Tibetan New Year this year when monks in the monastery displayed a picture of the Dalai Lama.
