Two men set themselves on fire in the Tibetan city of Lhasa on Sunday, Chinese state media said, confirming earlier reports.

One of the men died and the other “survived with injuries”, Xinhua news agency said.

The self-immolations are thought to be the first in Lhasa and the second inside Tibet.

But they follows a series of self-immolations, mostly involving monks and nuns, in Tibetan areas outside Tibet.

“They were a continuation of the self-immolations in other Tibetan areas and these acts were all aimed at separating Tibet from China,” Hao Peng, head of the Communist Party’s Commission for Political and Legal Affairs in the Tibet Autonomous Region, was quoted as saying.

‘Not a trace’

The man who died was identified as Tobgye Tseten. The other man, named Dargye, survived and was able to talk, the report said.

An earlier Radio Free Asia (RFA) report had referred to the men as monks and said that the incident took place outside the Jokhang Temple, a well-known tourist destination.

The Xinhua report said the self-immolations took place on a busy street near the temple. Downtown Lhasa was crowded with people celebrating a Buddhist festival, it added.

The two men were believed to have been among a group of youths who had gathered to protest against Chinese rule, said the RFA report.

Police put out the flames ”within minutes” of the self-immolations, Xinhua said.

”Within 15 minutes, the area was cleaned and not a trace of the incident was left at the site,” an eyewitness told RFA.

There have now been more than 30 self-immolations over the past year, primarily among young Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns. Most of them are believed to have died.

Most of the incidents have taken place in Tibetan areas of Sichuan province in southwest China.

Verifying these accounts is difficult, as foreign media are not allowed into the area.

China’s leaders blame the Dalai Lama, the Tibetans’ exiled spiritual leader, for inciting the self-immolations and encouraging separatism.

He rejects this, and both activist groups and the Tibetan government-in-exile say the self-immolations are protests against tight Chinese control of the region and religious repression.

It is not clear whether this is an organised movement or simply individuals carrying out copy-cat acts of personal protest, reports the BBC’s Michael Bristow in Beijing.

But it shows there is deep unhappiness, among at least some Tibetans, about how China rules them, our correspondent says.

Sandy Dahl, who became one of the tragic faces of 9/11 after her husband was killed while piloting United Flight 93, died Friday.

Dahl, 52, was found dead in her home in Colorado. Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Carl Blesch said Saturday that there was no indication of foul play.

Dahl worked tirelessly running the Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund and her death was a surprise, said David Dosch, a family friend.

“Sandy was instrumental in the creation of the Dahl Fund following the tragic events of 9/11, and her guiding light will be missed,” the fund said in a statement posted on its website.

She died in her sleep from natural causes, it said.

The scholarship fund gives money to aspiring pilots to help them attend commercial flight training schools.

“Sandy and Jason Dahl were my best friends,” said Dosch, who also works at the scholarship fund.

Jason Dahl was piloting United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001 when it crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It is believed that passengers aboard that flight thwarted a plot to steer the plane through the U.S. Capitol dome and eventually caused it to crash in a field.

In an interview last year on the anniversary of 9/11, Stacy Dahl wore their wedding ring.

“I do think about him every day,” she told CNN affiliate KMGH. “The reason I am doing this (interview) today and the reason that I do this at all is to make sure he is never forgotten.”

Sweden’s Loreen has clinched the top spot at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with her dance hit “Euphoria,” pushing aside competition from a sextet of Russian grannies and a Serbian balladeer.

Juries and television viewers from across Europe awarded Loreen a total of 372 points, handing her an easy win in an event that ended in the early hours Sunday in host country Azerbaijan. Sweden will take over hosting duties next year.

Russia’s Buranovskiye Babushki, a group of six elderly ladies, garnered much public affection for their cute onstage presence, but couldn’t quite match Sweden’s more contemporary offering.

Zeljko Joksimovic, a Eurovision regular from Serbia, came in a distant third with his slow and stripped-down “Nije Ljubav Stvar.”
