Tibetan Cuts Own Throat in Lhasa Freedom Protest

A Tibetan man called out on Friday for freedom for Tibet before cutting his own throat in a solo protest outside Lhasa’s famous Jokhang temple, Tibetan sources said. No details were available on whether the man had died or been detained following his 10:00 a.m. protest, a Tibetan living in the area told RFA’s Tibetan Service on June 23. “But he is unlikely to have survived,” the source said, writing to RFA on condition of anonymity. “When police arrived on the scene, they immediately covered the place with blue sheets so that no sign of the incident was visible,” he said.
