October 25:
Two Tibetans in their twenties set fire to themselves in a double self-immolation near a government building in Nagchu (Chinese: Naqu), Tibet Autonomous Region, on Thursday, October 25. Some Tibetan sources reported that the Tibetans were cousins.

The London-based group Free Tibet said cousins Tsepo, 20, and Tenzin, 25, called for independence for Tibet as they set themselves ablaze Thursday in front of a government building in their village in Biru county north of Lhasa, Tibet’s main city.

Tsepo reportedly died and Tenzin’s condition was unknown after he was taken away by authorities, Free Tibet said.

Tsepo | 泽博 was the 65th(62thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

泽博,康纳秀(今西藏自治区那曲地区比如县)白嘎乡牧民,20岁。
2012年10月25日下午4点左右,泽博与表兄弟丹增一起,在白嘎乡唐巴村第二大队学校门口自焚,呼喊“西藏独立”、“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”和“希望境内外藏人像兄弟一样团结一致”,泽博当场牺牲,丹增被军警带走,从此下落不明。
泽博是白嘎乡唐巴村牧民,也做小生意。父亲名叫布琼,母亲名叫嘎嘎。
两人自焚后,当地局势陷入紧张中,军警密布,通讯被封锁,直到第二天很晚自焚消息才传出。
10月26日,康索县(今西藏自治区那曲地区索县)赤多乡珍达寺三名僧人被捕:图丹念扎、次旺、普布。之后情况不明。可能是因为当局怀疑他们与比如县自焚的泽博和丹增同乡,对外泄露自焚消息而遭捕。

遗言:

“西藏独立”、“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”和“希望境内外藏人像兄弟一样团结一致”
