"Two Tibetan monks in [occupied Tibet] set themselves on fire, the government and Tibetan freedom activists said, the latest in a spate of such self-immolations that the campaigners said represented an unprecedented escalation of protests over curbs on religious freedom. China's state-run Xinhua news agency said the two monks were in stable condition after being 'rescued' by police on Monday morning." (09/26/11)
