DHARAMSHALA, October 25: Phayul is receiving confirmed information from Tibet that another Tibetan monk self-immolated in an apparent protest against China’s occupation today.

According to sources in exile, Dawa Tsering a 38 year-old monk from Kardze Monastery in eastern Tibet set himself ablaze at around 9.30 am local time.

A monk from Sera Jey monastery in south India, Lobsang Dakpa, while confirming the news told Phayul that Dawa Tsering self-immolated within the walls of the Kardze Monastery.

“Dawa Tsering was engulfed in flames as he shouted slogans for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile and the re-unification of the Tibetan people,” Dakpa said.

Chinese security personnel who have been stationed in the monastery since the 2008 pan-Tibet uprisings, arrived at the scene and doused the flames.

According to sources, Dawa Tsering refused medical attention and is currently being described in critical condition with severe burn injuries.

“When the Chinese police tried to take Dawa Tsering away, he cried and pleaded not to be taken away,” Dakpa said.

As of now the situation in and around the monastery is being described as tense with monks protecting Dawa Tsering inside the monastery and armed Chinese security guards surrounding the monks and the monastery.

This is the tenth instance since March this year when Tibetans inside Tibet have set themselves on fire demanding the return of the Dalai Lama from exile and protesting Beijing’s repressive policies in Tibet.
