DHARAMSHALA, January 18: The wave of self-immolation protests in Tibet against China’s continued occupation of Tibet shows no sign of abating with reports just in of yet another fiery death in Khyungchu region of Ngaba in eastern Tibet.

Initial reports have identified the Tibetan self-immolator as Tsering Phuntsok. According to a Swiss based Tibetan, Sonam, the protest occurred at around 3:15 pm (local time).

“Tsering Phuntsok set himself on fire in front of the local Chinese police station in Drachen village of Khyungchu region,” Sonam told Phayul. “He passed away at the site of his protest.”

Photos of today’s self-immolation protests show the charred body of Tsering Phuntsok, still on fire, lying on the ground. A number of people could be seen surrounding the body.

珠确(才让彭措),安多琼曲(今四川省阿坝藏族羌族自治州红原县)瓦切乡牧民,27岁。
2013年1月18日下午3点多,珠确在瓦切乡派出所附近的团结广场的派出所前自焚,并呼喊“嘉瓦丹增嘉措钦”,还朝原本在此参加法会的藏人们喊道“请不要恐惧”。他的遗体被当局军警强行带走,据悉被带到州府马尔康县火化。
当地寺院麦洼寺为首的各寺院僧众赶到他家,为他举行了超度祈福法会。珠确的父亲角布大胆地告诉藏人:自己的儿子是为西藏民族的自由和正义事业而自焚的,身为父亲虽然痛苦,但不感到遗憾。
他是红原县瓦切乡第二大队牧民,父亲名叫角布,母亲名叫央措。他与怀有身孕的妻子热巴有两个女儿:5岁的大女儿贡确曲珍,3岁的小女儿乃确堪卓。
当局向瓦切乡、麦洼乡、色地乡等乡村派遣公安、武警和特警,并切断了红原县的网络、电话和手机等通讯。召开多次会议称自焚是严重的违法行为,警告藏人不要向自焚家人表达同情,否则将要承担严重后果。在瓦切乡有十几名藏人被拘押,目前名字不详。

“请不要恐惧”
