Tibetan Man Self-immolates in Luchu, in Gansu Province

A 27 year old Tibetan man has self-immolated and died in Luchu county on Monday, February 25, 2013. Sources told VOA that Tsezung Kyab carried out his self-burning protest at around 1:30 pm (local time) at an open ground in front of the prayer hall of Gaden Shedrup Choekhorling monastery in Xitsang Township of Luchu County.

The area is in the Kanlho Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province. Kyab is reported to be a cousin of Pema Dorjee, a man who self-immolated in the same area on December 8, 2012. The large number of Tibetans who had gathered at the monastery to observe Chotrul Duechen (Day of Offerings), a religious festival, prevented the security forces from extinguishing the fire, allowing Kyab to accomplish his protest and end his suffering.  

The Tibetans were also able to prevent Kyab’s body from being taken into custody, and instead transported it to his home village of Choedkhor, near Xitsang Township in Luchu county.
