Tibetan teenager becomes 8th child to self-immolate to protest Chinese rule

Wangchen Kyi, a 17-year-old girl, set herself on fire "on the grasslands of an ethnic Tibetan region in western China" on Sunday, becoming the eighth child to burn themselves alive to protest Chinese oppression in Tibet. More than 90 people have self-immolated in Tibet since February, 2009; the numbers have surged in recent weeks. (WaPo)
