On the sixth anniversary of protests in Tibetan regions, and a subsequent crackdown, two Tibetans have reportedly self-immolated. Their current health status and whereabouts are unknown. From the Voice of America:
Sources tell VOA’s Tibetan Service, Losang Palden, a monk from the Kirtit (sic) Monastery in China’s Sichuan province set himself on fire near the monastery. Chinese security forces took Palden away but it was not clear if he was alive or had died.
