[Myanmar] 2 Tibetan Teens Die After Self-Immolating In China

Recommended Posts

Two Tibetan teenagers died after setting themselves on fire outside a monastery in southwest China in the latest such protests against Chinese rule, an overseas rights group said on Tuesday. The incidents pushed the number of confirmed self-immolations to 51 since 2009, London-based Free Tibet said in a statement. The group said 18-year-old monk Lobsang Kalsang and 17-year-old former monk Damchoek set themselves on fire on Monday outside Kirti Monastery in Sichuan province’s Aba county. They died later in the day after they were taken to a hospital by Chinese authorities.—AP
