"One of two Tibetan teens who set themselves on fire Friday near a monastery in [occupied Tibet] to protest Chinese rule has died, activists said. ... Free Tibet said dozens of monks appear to be ready to kill themselves, the Times reported. The group said in a statement rumors had been circulating in the region, known as Aba or Ngagba in Tibetan, that 'many more people were prepared to give up their lives in protest.'" (10/08/11)
