A Tibetan man who self-immolated in protest against Chinese rule in Gansu province on Monday has died, according to a source inside Tibet.
The fate of Lhamo Kyab, 43, who burned himself in Tsoe town in Sangchu (Xiahe) county within the Gannan (Kanlho) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, was not immediately known due to communication problems.
The source told RFA’s Tibetan Service Tuesday that he had died on the spot in the predawn self-immolation.
Unlike most other Tibetan self-immolators, Lhamo Kyab, a bachelor forest guard, jumped into a raging fire he set up using wood and kerosene and was mostly consumed by the flames.
