the 12th self immolation

A former monk at Tibet’s Karma monastery, the scene of  a recent crackdown by Chinese security forces, set himself on fire on Thursday in protest against Chinese rule in Tibetan areas, a Tibetan source in exile said.

Karma monastery, located in the Chamdo prefecture of the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), was taken over by Chinese armed police following the Oct. 26 bombing of a nearby government building.
