Nepalese police carry an exiled Tibetan monk, that set himself on fire at Boudhanath Stupa, to a hospital in Kathmandu on February 13, 2013. A Tibetan monk doused himself in petrol in a Kathmandu restaurant and set himself on fire, marking the 100th self-immolation bid in a wave of protests against Chinese rule since 2009. Police in the Nepalese capital told AFP that the exile had burned himself in an eatery near Kathmandu's Boudhanath Stupa, one of the world's holiest Buddhist shrines, terrifying tourists who were having breakfast.
