    A Tibetan Buddhist nun burned to death last week after she set herself ablaze as an act of protest.

    On Sunday, more than ten thousand people reportedly gathered outside of the Tawu Nyitso monastery in China's western Sichuan Province to honor 35-year-old Palden Choetso.

    Her self-immolation was meant as a call for Tibetan independence. She reportedly died while chanting slogans calling for a "Free Tibet" and the Dalai Lama's return.

    Choetso was the eleventh Tibetan monk or nun to self-immolate in the past several months. According to a Radio Free Asia report, the Dalai Lama called the self-immolations "very, very sad."
