Breaking News: Tibet is burning - Another self-immolation
Phayul[Wednesday, February 08, 2012 19:46]
DHARAMSHALA, February 8: Reports coming out of Tibet confirm that another Tibetan set himself on fire today.

The self-immolation took place at the No. 2 primary school in the besieged Ngaba town of eastern Tibet at around 6.30 pm local time.

In information received by Phayul from sources in exile, the Tibetan was heard raising slogans against the Chinese government while engulfed in fire.

"A Tibetan set himself on fire while shouting slogans in protest against the Chinese government," the exile base of Kirti monastery in Dharamshala said in a release citing links in the region.

According to eyewitnesses, the Tibetan is believed to be a monk but his name and place couldn't be ascertained at the time of reporting.

"He was taken away immediately by soldiers and police, and his present condition and whereabouts are not known," the release said.

In Tibet, 21 Tibetans have set their bodies on fire demanding the return of exiled Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and protesting China’s continued occupation of Tibet.

Many parts of Tibet remain cut off from outside world with a prevailing situation of undeclared martial law following mass protests in recent weeks in which at least a dozen Tibetans are feared dead in police firings.

The release also said that two unidentified monks were arrested from the vicinity today. Their identities and whereabouts are also not yet known.

Today's self immolation in Ngaba coincides with the call by the exile Tibetan leadership for a worldwide vigil against China's ever growing repression and military build-up in Tibet.
