    A portrait of the Dalai Lama is seen at a roadside stall as exile Tibetans line a street during a candlelit vigil to mark two more reported self-immolations in Tibet, in Dharmsala, India, Thursday, April 19, 2012. The London-based Free Tibet activist group says two lay Tibetans, Sonam and Choephak Kyap, self-immolated together Thursday in front of Jonang Dzamthang monastery in Dzamthang county. Thirty-two people have set themselves on fire in Tibetan areas over the past year to draw attention to China's restrictions on Buddhism and call for the return from exile of their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.
