Sherab Tsedor | 西绕次多

A 25 year old Tibetan refugee living in India, set himself on fire, in front of the Chinese Embassy in the Indian capital New Delhi today.

Indian policemen on security at the Chinese Embassy tried to extinguish the fire on Sherab Tsedor, a Tibetan activist living in New Delhi, witnesses said. Sherab is currently admitted in a nearby hospital.

Prior to the act, Sherab Tsedor, in a press release had urged the Indian government to lead the world community in putting pressure on China to solve the issue of Tibet peacefully.

“We are dying and it’s the moral responsibility of every freedom loving people to support us,” said Tsedor in the release.

Quoted from Guardian.co.uk: Fifteen Tibetans have self-immolated in the past year; at least seven of them have died following their protest. Sherab Tsedor, 25, set fire to himself outside the Chinese embassy in Delhi on 4 November 2011 to protest about human rights violations against Tibetans in China.

Sherab Tsedor | 西绕次多 was the 13th(3rdin India ) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009. He was the 3rdself-immolator outside Tibet since 1998.
