Self-immolation increasing among Tibet monks

Religious monks in exile march in solidarity with those who have used the extreme tactic to affect change.

    Two teenage monks set themselves on fire in China on Monday to protest against Beijing's rule of Tibet.

    Monks who support the 'Free Tibet' movement have increased the usage of lighting themselves on fire for their cause, and have gained support from a group of monks-in-exile who have walked the length of India in solidarity.
