Reuters cites a report from London-based rights group Free Tibet, saying that police opened fire on a group of protesters in Sichuan:
A monk was shot in the arm after police used teargas and opened fire during a clash with Tibetans outside a police station in the western province of Sichuan, which borders Tibet, British-based Free Tibet said in a statement.
The group did not say when the violence happened and police in the area could not be reached for comment.
Since 2009, there have been more than 130 self-immolations in protest of Chinese policies in Tibetan regions of China. Earlier this month, rights groups reported two Tibetan deaths by self-immolations, and the New York Times reported on a third earlier this week, also citing a Free Tibet press release.
