Tibetan Pilgrims prostrate on their way to Labrang Monastery in Xiahe. There have been several recent self-immolations in the Xiahe area and Tibetans across the region complain that their right to practice their religion is being curtailed by the Chinese authorities. According to the International Campaign for Tibet a Washington based lobby group, 98 Tibetans have self immolated since March 2011. They were protesting against Chinese rule of Tibet and calling for the return of the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader who lives in exile in India, to his homeland.
