Information

31-years-old Tibetan nun Dolma set fire to herself outside a monastery in Bathang county, Kham.

When Tibetans who were circumbulating the Ba Choede monastery, a traditional religious practice, witnessed the self-immolation, they managed to extinguish the flames and take Dolma to hospital.
