Another Tibetan burns himself to death to protest the Chinese rule

A fierce protest of the Chinese domination in Tibet left Dobo, 23, on November 4.

Tibetan exiles say that this is the 153th case of self-immolation since 2009. Most people who set themselves on fire have died.

The demonstrators have called for autonomy and freedom for Tibet and the return of the spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama, from exile in India.

"The Chinese government should address the legitimate grievances of the Tibetan people" and revise policies that encourage Tibetans to "use self-immolation to protest against Chinese domination in Tibet," said Lobsang Sangay, the head of the Tibetan government in exile.

Dobo's protest was in Amdo Ngawa, eastern Tibet, an area where 40 previous self-immolations took place. Dobo came from the village of Jakorma in the Chujema area in the province of Ngawa, in the province of Sichuan.
