Yungdrung | 永仲

Yungdrung, a 27-year-old Tibetan man, set himself ablaze in Zatoe town of Yushul, eastern Tibet on September 29, Saturday.

According to India based Tibetan language new portal, Tibet Express, Yungdrung was dressed in complete Tibetan attire and raised multiple slogans as he carried out his self-immolation protest near rows of shops.

“While engulfed in flames, Yungdrung called for independence of Tibet, the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Gyalwang Karmapa from exile, and addressed Dr Lobsang Sangay (the elected leader of Tibetan people) as the king of Tibet,” the report quoted sources as saying.

According to eyewitnesses, Yungdrung was severely burned by the time Chinese security personnel arrived at the scene and whisked him away to an unknown location.

His wellbeing is not clearly known, but the report suggested that Yungdrung passed away this morning while being taken to a nearby place in China.
