Two Tibetans died from setting themselves on fire on Saturday in separate protests against China’s rule in Tibet. 24 years old Kunchok Phelgye set himself on fire around 5:20 pm in front of the main assembly hall of the Taktsang Lhamo Kirti Monastery in Dzoge County, Ngaba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. He was a monk of Dringwa Sumdo Monastery in Dzoege.

Sources with contacts in the area say Kunchok Phelgye called for long life of the Dalai Lama with his hands clasped together in prayers while on fire.

 “Kunchok Phelgye raised slogans for the long life and return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Kyabje Kirti Rinpoche and reunification of Tibetans inside and outside of Tibet,” said Kanyak Tsering, Dharamsala-based Kirti Monastery’s spokesman citing sources in the region.

The deceased’s body was carried to his room in the monastery where several hundreds of monks gathered to recite prayers.

Kunchok Phelgye is survived by his father Kunchok Kyab, mother Dolma Tso and nine other family members.  
Another Tibetan, 23 years old Pema Dorjee self-immolated around 4:30 pm in front of the Shitsang Monastery in Kanlho’s Luchu County in eastern Tibet.

Pema set himself on fire as several Tibetans were gathering at the local monastery for Gaden Ngachoe, a special lamp offering prayer sessions.

Sources say Pema shouted slogans calling for the return of the Dalai Lama, independence for Tibet and unity of Tibetans while he ablaze.
