Thousands Riot over Land Seizures in Southern China

A Tibetan 18 years has set himself on fire Monday, March 5 in Sichuan, bringing to three the number of suicides by this means in southern China the last three days, reports the Free Tibet movement.

Twenty-five attempts, which resulted in fifteen deaths were recorded during the last twelve months, according to the Tibetan exile movement. This is for many Buddhist monks or nuns, but the last three were laymen, they point out, saying it reflects a growing hostility toward Chinese sovereignty.

The young man died Monday in the county of Aba set fire to his clothing before walking up in flames in front of an office building where he collapsed, Free Tibet reported, citing a witness.
