"A Tibetan has died after he and another man set themselves on fire in [occupied Tibet], state media said, taking the total number of such acts in the restive region to 14 in less than a year. The incidents happened on Friday near the Kirti monastery in [what the Chinese occupation refers to as] Sichuan province's Aba county, the scene of sporadic bouts of unrest since a young monk named Phuntsog set himself alight last March, the Xinhua news agency said."
