FILE - In this Oct. 23, 2012 file photo 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. A surge in self-immolations and large demonstrations by Tibetans in western China mark a new phase in protests against rule by the authoritarian Chinese government.
