(TibetanReview.net, Jul17, 2015) – Chinese authorities in Kyegudo (Chinese: Jiegu) County of Yulshul (Yushu) Prefecture, Qinghai Province, have detained on Jul 10 the parents and five siblings of a 26-year-old monk who had carried out a self-immolation protest on Jul 9, reported Radio Free Asia (Washington) Jul 15. The monk had died in a hospital in the provincial capital Xining the next day.

The authorities refused to hand over the monk’s body to his family when they came for it. Rather, they detained all seven of them.

The deceased’s father, Nangchen Tashi, is a local businessman disliked by the Chinese authorities for his support for Tibetan language and culture, the report added.
