Tibetan nun immolates self in Kham Bathang
Phayul[Sunday, March 30, 2014 05:33]
DHARAMSHALA, March 30: A Tibetan nun immolated herself in Tibet’s Bathang County in the traditional Tibetan province of Kham on Saturday around 3PM (Local Time), sources said.

The nun whose self immolation protest took place near Ba Choede monastery was spotted by local Tibetans on their routine circumambulation. The local residents doused the flames and took her to a nearby hospital. Chinese government officials including the police arrived at the hospital and sealed it prohibiting more Tibetans who had gathered at the hospital to enter.

The local Chinese administration immediately stepped up security in and around the county blocking all communication lines including micromessaging apps and monitoring movement of people. “There has been a self immolation protest by a Tibetan nun but due to restrictions immediately imposed the details are not yet known,” a Tibetan member of parliament, Bawa Kelsang Gyaltsen was quoted by the Tibet Times as saying.

This is 130th self immolation protest in Tibet since 2009.
