Tibetan Monk Burns Himself to Death in Protest Against Chinese Occupation

A young Tibetan monk has become the latest to set himself on fire in protest against China's occupation of Tibet. He died in the main street of his home-town Chashang Raruwa.

Lobsang Sherab, a 20 year old Buddhist monk died after setting himself on fire yesterday evening in Ngaba county, Amdho, north-eastern Tibet. Sources said armed Chinese troops and police arrived and took his body away, ignoring repeated pleas to hand it over to his family members.
