Video shows dramatic details of Tibetan immolation
Video shows dramatic details of Tibetan self-immolation in China
By The Associated Press

BEIJING (AP) ' Video obtained by an overseas pro-Tibet group shows Chinese security forces beating a man who had set himself on fire in one of several self-immolations by Tibetans protesting Chinese rule.

The Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet says the 45-second video it released Tuesday shows the self-immolation of Losang Jamyang in January in the west China town of Aba.

The footage shows a crowd gathering around a man who suddenly explodes into flames and leaps around. Riot police close in, and an officer uses a pushcart to knock the man down. Other police seem to kick the man after he falls and then blast him with fire extinguishers.

Thirty-two people have set themselves on fire in Tibetan areas over the past year.
