DHARAMSHALA: Two days after Lhamo Kyab set himself on fire in Labrang, Dhondup, another Tibetan man self- immolated early this morning (22 October) near Labrang monastery in Sangchu county in north-eastern Tibet.
Dhondup, in his 50s, set himself on fire and died on the spot. Photos of the incident show a completely burnt body of Dhondup in flames. Eyewitnesses said local Tibetans stopped the Chinese police from taking away the body.
Over 57 Tibetans set themselves on fire in Tibet since 2009, calling for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet and freedom for Tibetans.
