A Tibetan man has burned to death after setting himself on fire to protest China's continued occupation of Tibet.
 
Father of two Lhamo Kyab, 27, died in the eastern Tibetan town of Bora. A source in India with close contacts in the area said that the self-immolation occurred near the Bora monastery.
 
The source said Lhamo Kyab called for Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to return to Tibet as he was engulfed in flames.
 
He is the fourth Tibetan this month who died of self-immolation.
