Tibetan protester sets himself on fire (Graphic Photos)

27year old Tibetan protester, Jamphel Yeshi, today set himself on fire and sprinted for 50m through New Delhi, in a demonstration during the Chinese president’s visit to India.
Yeshi, who was on fire for about two minutes before he collapsed, sustained burns on 98 per cent of his body. Other protesters doused him in water and took him to the hospital where he’s in critical condition.
Yeshi and other Tibetans protesters (who now live in India) were demonstrating against China’s rule over Tibet and the Chinese President’s arrival in India later this week for a summit meeting.
