Tibetan Exile Self-Immolates


Let It All Bleed Out
March 28, 2012
New Delhi, India

A Tibetan protester who set himself on fire in India during a demonstration [on March 26, 2012] against a visit by the Chinese president has died from his injuries in hospital.

Jamphel Yeshi sustained burns to 98 per cent of his body when he sprinted for 50m outside the Indian Parliament building engulfed in flames in New Delhi on Monday.

The 27-year-old had been protesting against China's continued rule over Tibet and collapsed in flames as other protesters tried to put him out.

Yeshi died just hours before Chinese president Hu Jintao's expected arrival in New Delhi.

He was on fire perhaps less than two minutes, but some of his clothing had disintegrated and his skin was mottled with black, burned patches by the time he was driven to a hospital.

Yeshi, 27, escaped from Tibet in 2006 and had been living in New Delhi for the past two years, activists said.

He collapsed after around 50m as fellow protesters beat out the flames with Tibetan flags they were carrying.

Yeshi was later treated for severe burns at a New Delhi hopital, one Tibetan organiser said.

I think so far there have been like 30 self-immolation's in Tibet this year.

It's a good way to get international attention, but unlucky for them China really doesn't give a shit about what other countries say. And good for them on that. They shouldn't care what other nations say about them.

inappropriate behavior

Your apology is accepted :)
Why post a link to another thread instead of the actual photos?

He meant tt you shd have post this as an additional post in the Miscellaneous Image section instead of starting a new thread in Fresh News.
