DHARAMSHALA, March 24: A Tibetan woman today set herself on fire in an apparent protest against China’s continuing occupation of Tibet.

Thirty-year-old Kal Kyi, a mother of four has set herself ablaze protesting near Jonang monastery in Zamthang in Eastern Tibet at 3:30 pm (local time).

“The local Tibetans carried her charred body inside the monastery premises to prevent it from falling into the hands of Chinese security personnel,’ said Tsangyang Gyatso, an exile Tibetan who has close contacts in the region.

Kal Kyi had died from injuries. Kyi is survived by her husband, Gyepo, and their four children.

Last year in May, another Tibetan woman, Rikyo 33 has set herself on fire near the Jonang Zamthang Gonchen monastery in Zamthang County, which is located in Ngaba, the nerve centre of the ongoing wave of self-immolations in Tibet.

With Kyi’s self-immolation the confirmed number of Tibetan self-immolation has reached 110. The primary demand of those who set themselves on fire are freedom for Tibet and return of His holiness the Dalai lama from exile.

Fourteen Tibetans have self-immolated since the beginning of this year. Eight of them happened in February alone.
