In this photo taken Tuesday Oct 23, 2012 and released by Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet, Chinese paramilitary police officers and residents converge on the body of Dorje Rinchen, a farmer in his late 50s, unseen who self immolated on the main street in Xiahe in northwestern China's Gansu province. This was the second self-immolation death in two days near the Labrang monastery in Xiahe. The monastery is one of the most important outside of Tibet and was the site of numerous protests by monks following deadly ethnic riots in Tibet in 2008 that were the most sustained Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule in decades.
