23November2012-004Dharamshala: - Reports on the Hong Kong social media network WeChat say that, on November 23, a 23-year-old Tibetan man, Tamding Gyab, self-immolated at a crossroads in Luchu County, Amdo region, northeastern Tibet.

Tamding's condition is unclear and his family details are unknown. The situation in Luchu County following the self-immolation is also unclear.

According to the exile Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamshala, northern India, Lubum Gyal's self-immolation in Dowa town on November 22 brought the total number of cases to 79 - making the most recent incident the 80th.

However, the writer and blogger Woeser, based in Beijing estimated on November 23 that the total is actually 84, including a nun and abbot whose families contest the claim that they self-immolated, possibly having been bribed by the Chinese authorities.
