In Luchu, Amdo (Chinese: Luqu, Gansu province), a picture captures the self-immolation of Tsesung Kyab outside the main temple of Shitsang Gonsar monastery on February 25, 2013. A crowd of pilgrims bears witness to the event, despite the risk of being prosecuted later by Chinese authorities. Tsesung Kyab was the fifth Tibetan to self-immolate in Luchu.
