On Saturday, 21-year-old Lobsang Jamyang lit himself on fire to protest for freedom and the return of the Dalai Lama. Chinese police who rushed to the scene kicked and beat him with clubs spiked with nails.
Tibetans who witnessed this inhumane attack tried to stop the police; they too were savagely beaten. SFT has received reports that a larger group gathered in protest. The police opened fire on the crowd, shooting at least two people. A Tibetan woman is now in critical condition and many more have been injured and arrested.
