Beijing, Nov 4 (ANI): A 35-year-old Tibetan Buddhist nun has burnt herself to death in south-west China in protest against the repression of Tibetan culture.


According to Xinhua, Qiu Xiang doused herself in fuel and set herself alight at a road crossing in Sichuan province.


A spokeswoman for International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) said that the woman was heard calling for religious freedom and the return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.


She is believed to be the eleventh Tibetan monk this year to set herself on fire in protest against Chinese rule, The BBC reports.


Last month, a Tibetan nun set herself alight while protesting against Chinese policies in the Kirti region.


Twenty-year-old Tenzin Wangmo, a member of the Mamae Dechen Choekhorling nunnery, chanted slogans and then set herself on fire using petrol and died at the spot. (ANI)
