VOA Tibetan has learnt that Pema Gyaltsen, the young man who carried out a self-immolation protest in Kham Nyarong on March 18, and whose condition was unclear after he was taken away by Chinese security, is still alive today.
Activist Organization 'Free Tibet' says the man self-immolated Saturday in southwest China's Sichuan province, drawing a large detachment of police and security personnel who took him into custody
He reportedly says 21st century Buddhists must use their intelligence and conduct analytical observation rather than blindly follow the faith

Overriding objections by China, India will allow the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to make a religious visit to the far northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, a border territory partially claimed by China.
China claims territory in Arunachal Pradesh or 'Southern Tibet', but India says China is occupying part of its territory on the Aksai Chin plateau
