Candlight vigil for Palden Choetso

Video has emerged of a large gathering for a vigil for Palden Choetso.

The 35-year-old nun was the 11th Tibetan to set themselves on fire this year, in protest against Chinese occupation and repression in Tibet.

Thousands of people attended the vigil and other ceremonies.

The video also features footage of Chinese security forces arriving at her funeral a few days later.
