Jamphel Yeshi, a 26-year-old Tibetan man living in New Delhi, India, lit himself on fire yesterday to protest the Chinese occupation of Tibet and Chinese president Hu Jintao’s impending visit to India.
While almost 30 Tibetans have committed similar acts during the past year, this is the first occurrence outside Tibet, and therefore the first we have photographs of.
Yeshi is in critical condition as of Monday. Free Tibet, free the Tibetans, and let them live their life in peace.
Yeshi died on Wednesday. Let him rest in peace.
