Monk raises his fist for freedom
Gesture of defiance from self-immolator
A 20-year-old Tibetan monk, Lobsang Tsultrim (right), set fire to himself at 5pm (local time) in front of Kirti Monastery, Ngaba Town yesterday.
While in flames, Lobsang raised his fist in the air in the Tibetan gesture of freedom.
Beaten by Chinese forces
Chinese state security forces arrived and began to beat the still-burning monk.
They then put out the flames with a fire extinguisher and took him away in a truck. In the truck, Lobsang again raised his fist in the air.
Increased security in Ngaba
State security measures in Ngaba Town are described as being even more restrictive now.
There are new checkpoints, extra forces and nobody is allowed to enter or leave the town.
