VOA Special English News 67

China says a Tibetan nun has died after setting herself on fire in southwestern China. She is the 11th Buddhist religious worker to set themselves on fire in the area. The official Xinhua news agency says 35 year-old Quio Xiang died at a road-crossing in Shichuan province. A witness told the VOA's Tibetan service he found the woman covered in gasoline before she set the fire. She said she was prepared to sacrifice for greater freedoms and the return of Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. On Wednesday the head of the Tibetan government in exile told the United States to press China for more openness in the area, so that the protests can be investigated. Lobsang Sangay also denied Chinese accusations that his exile government has urged Tibetan Buddhists to set themselves on fire.
