BEIJING — A Tibetan taxi driver has set herself on fire and died in the latest of dozens of protests against Chinese rule over the Himalayan region, overseas rights groups said.

Chagmo Kyi, a mother of two, self-immolated Saturday afternoon in a square in Tongren county in western China’s Qinghai province, the eighth self-immolation in the Tongren area since Nov. 4, the Washington-based International Campaign for Tibet said in an email.

Why don't they try to take some Chinese along with them. That's what extreme activism is like. Tibetans self immolate, Muslims blow up buildings.

They kill themselves. And what of the Palestinian babies? Do they kill themselves or are they murdered by filthy antichrists?

Since you're so concerned, you should self-immolate. Need a match?

For God's sake, Ray! What is it with these Tibetans? Why are they always bursting into flames? Can't the Chinese do something to put a lid on those animals? It's disturbing.

Actually, do nothing. Self-immolation just wipes out the separatists. Good riddance.

Better a million filthy Han burn to death than ONE Tibetan. Your country is the world's worst tyrant. It's not by accident you're North Korea's only supporter and patron.

Nothing the Han media says about Tibet is reliable, least of all the deaths of self-immolating freedom fighters.

Tibetans are being replaced by Han invaders, sadly, in one of the worst examples of cultural genocide in the modern age.
