A protester, identified as Sherab Tsedor, in his mid-twenties and a former executive member of the Tibetan Youth Congress in Delhi, is dragged away by Indian police moments after he tried to set himself on fire in front of the Chinese embassy in New Delhi on November 4, 2011. Several protests by Tibetan demonstrators have taken place in front of the Chinese embassy in the last two weeks as they voice their opposition to China's policies in Tibet. The protestor who doused himself with gasoline and set himself alight briefly was arrested and taken away into police custody.

Another woman was recently prevented from attempting self-immolation in Katmandu.
