In the past eight months, 11 Tibetans have lit themselves on fire in an unprecedented wave of protest against China's escalating clampdown in eastern Tibet. This video shows Palden Choetso, a 35 year-old nun, standing upright as flames engulf her body. Additional footage shows Tibetans' response to the self-immolation, including nuns protesting and chanting "Freedom to Tibet"; thousands of Tibetans at a candlelight vigil early on the morning of her funeral; and Chinese security forces converging on Nyitso Monastery.
