Sangay Gyatso | 桑杰嘉措

Sangay Gyatso, 27, self-immolated in a monastery compound near Tsoe (in Chinese, Hezuo) county, the administrative center of the Kanlho (Gannan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in southern Gansu.

“He set himself on fire a little after noon near a stupa in the premises of the Dokar monastery,” a source inside Tibet told RFA’s Tibetan service.

The monastery is situated about 10 km (6.2 miles) from the Tsoe town center.

The sources provided grisly photographs of Sangay Gyatso’s charred body but little information of his personal background, only saying his father was identified as Gonpo Dhondup and his mother as Gonpo Tso.

Sangay Gyatso | 桑杰嘉措 was the 60th(57thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.
