Tibetan monk kills self in China
BEIJING, (AFP): A 63-year-old Tibetan monk has self-immolated in southwest China in protest against Beijing’s presence in Tibet, campaigners said, the fifth person to do so this year.
Tenga, a popular monk and volunteer teacher of village children, died after setting himself ablaze on Sunday in Sichuan province’s Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, said the International Campaign for Tibet, headquartered in Washington.
The International Campaign for Tibet said he was the 151st Tibetan to self-immolate since 2009.
