Hindustan Times (Ranchi) - - World -

BEI­JING: A Ti­betan man set him­self on fire and died in a protest call­ing for the re­turn of the re­gion’s ex­iled Bud­dhist leader, the Dalai Lama. Washington-based In­ter­na­tional Cam­paign for Ti­bet said Dorbe, 23, self-im­mo­lated on Sun­day in Ngaba county, a tra­di­tion­ally Ti­betan re­gion of Sichuan prov­ince. Dorbe is the 154st Ti­betan to self-im­mo­late since the protests be­gan in 2009. China in­sists Ti­bet is part of its ter­ri­tory, but many Ti­betans say they are in­de­pen­dent.
