Tibetan youth self immolates in Bora
Phayul[Friday, May 05, 2017 10:57]
DHARAMSHALA, May 5: A Tibetan youth has reportedly set himself ablaze on May 2 (Tuesday) in Tibet's Bora County, according to the Voice of America.

Two sources have confirmed that a self immolation did take place in Bora on May 2 but details as to the name, age and other information are unavailable. It is also not known where the self immolator is held or if he is currently alive or dead.

Due to strict monitoring of communication in the region, it is difficult to verify the information. The Chinese government authorities have beefed up surveillance and monitoring making it difficult for any information about the incident to get out of the area.

Many residents of Bora County are not aware of the self immolation because the Chinese patrol on the streets reacted swiftly to remove all traces of a self immolation.

The self immolation in Bora is the 149th by a Tibetan in Tibet since 2009.
